Publication History

This rarely performed work was subject to multiple arrangements by the composer. Originally written for violin solo, harps, timpani, winds, and double bass (Ricordi, Plate 40441, 1865), Gounod compressed the texture to violin, piano, and organ. Later, Gounod would replace the violin with a high soprano singing to the text of the "Ave verum corpus" (ca.1878).
