Charles Gounod

This selection form Gounod's work does not  have the sunny disposition of the selections of  other composers such as Faure but the steel  drum and Moog synthesizer arrangements add  drama to all three pieces. Gounod's Ave Maria is based on the first  prelude from JS Bach's Well-Tempered Clavier  and the harp adds an extra sweetness to the  tone of this arrangement.   The music for Gunod's Marionette's Funeral  March was composed in London, as part of the  incidental music for the musical play Jeanne d'  Arc. It has since become famous as the theme music for the Alfred Hitchcock television series.

His Gallia is a biblical funeral cantata. It was  composed in London in 1871 for the  International Exhibition that marked the  opening of the Royal Albert Hall, while Gounod  was seeking shelter from the Franco Prussian  war. It is said to express the outrage of the  French people against the atrocities of the war  and at one stage the steel drums in this  arrangement give a strong impression of tolling  bells.
