Charles François Gounod (1818-1893), was a French composer. He is best known as the author of the opera Faust and the Ave Maria. He was distinguished as one of the most prolific and respected French composers. His influence on other French composers such as Bizet, Saint-Saëns and Massenet is unquestionable. Until Debussy came to declare "necessary" in terms of its aesthetic represented for that generation of French a powerful counterweight to the overwhelming Wagnerian thrust.
