Cherubini, Luigi

(Carlo Zenobio Salvatore, 14 September 1760, Florence – 15 March 1842, Paris)
   Director of the Paris Conservatory (1821–1841), he began composing professional sacred music late in his career. His Mass in F (1809) was well received, and he followed it with seven more masses between 1811 and 1825 in a deliberately conservative style. It is the critical consensus that his famous Requiems in C minor (1817) and D minor (1836, written for his own death), are his most outstanding works.
