Charles Gounod

Punch Charles-François Gounod (; 17 June 181817 or 18 October 1893) was a French composer, best known for his ''Ave Maria,'' based on a work by Bach, as well as his opera ''Faust''. Another opera by Gounod occasionally still performed is ''Roméo et Juliette''.

Gounod died at Saint-Cloud in 1893, after a final revision of his twelve operas. His funeral took place ten days later at the Church of the Madeleine, with Camille Saint-Saëns playing the organ and Gabriel Fauré conducting. He was buried at the Cimetière d'Auteuil in Paris.
