Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
The Cantique de Jean Racine, dedicated to César Franck, is an early work, dating from 1865. A reticent piece for four-part mixed choir and organ, it won the composer the first prize for composition at the École Niedermeyer, where at that time he was still a student.
