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.
