Berlioz, (Louis– ) Hector

(11 December 1803, La Côte–St-André, Isère, France – 8 March 1869, Paris)
   Composer whose few sacred works, including the mass fragment "Resurrexit" (1824), a huge Requiem (1837), a Te Deum (1849), and the oratorio L’Enfance {}du Christ ("The Infancy of Christ," 1850–1854), occupy a singular place in the modern choral concert repertory owing to Berlioz’ personal and inimitable Romanticism heard throughout the music.
