Hector Berlioz was a French composer. In 1837 the Minister of Fine Arts commissioned him to compose a Requiem Mass to be performed on the 7th anniversary of the heroes of July 28, 1830. He finished his Grande Messe des Morts on June 29, but days before the occasion, the bureaus cancelled the ceremony. The recipient, Pierre-Louis-Philippe Dietsch, was maitre de chapelle at St.-Eustache, and later at Ste.-Madeleine.
