Luigi Cherubini (1760-1842)
Beethoven adored Cherubini and considered him one of his
Models in Music. After Napoleon Cherubini became the official co-Director of Bourbons' King's Chapel (1815). In 1819 he wrote a Coronation Mass, a great masterpiece, that, due to the political turmoils, was never
performed. Only in 1867 the score resurfaced and in 20th century a complete new edition was available. Agnus Dei is an unforgetable masterpiece.
