Charles Gounod: Messe solennelle de sainte Cécile

Charles Gounod

Messe solennelle de sainte Cécile

CG 56

Description

"Shining rays stream from the 'Messe de sainte Cécile'. At first people were dazzled, then bewitched, then overcome." This is how the composer Camille Saint-Saëns described the impression made on him by what was probably Charles Gounod’s best-known setting of the mass. The work, which was written in 1855 in honor of the patron saint of church music, soon became well-known beyond the borders of France and acquired a popularity like almost no other sacred composition. In the Messe de sainte Cécile, Gounod combines sublime simplicity with operatic-dramatic elements and a colorful, effective orchestration. Critical edition in proven Carus quality.
