Aloys KUNC (1832-1895)

  • Aloys Kunc is a French composer from Languedoc, organist and teacher. He was considered in his time as a plain-chant specialist. Chapel master of the cathedral of Toulouse from 1870, he created in 1875 the review Musica Sacra (later Music Sacred), where many scores of religious pieces from the last quarter of the nineteenth century were published including César Franck, Alexandre Guilmant, Eugène Gigout.
  • Aloys KUNC's compositions include masses, motets and numerous musics for the organ. He wrote for the inauguration of the Basilica du Sacré-Coeur de Montmartre in Paris, a very famous hymn (save, save France!). Two of his sons followed his path as a composer: Aymé Kunc (Prix de Rome in 1902) and Pierre Kunc.
