Leo Delibes is known above all as a composer of ballets (Coppelia, Sylvia) and opera (Lakme). As well as works for the stage, including many operettas and operas bouffes, he also composed a whole series of songs, duets and choruses, which follow in the composer's buffo and ballet tradition with their charming and elegant spirit. His only known sacred work, the Messe breve for two high (children's) voices and organ, also follows in this tradition, imbued with deep feeling and intimacy. It is written without Credo and Benedictus but according to the French tradition, contains a setting of the "O salutaris hostia" which can be sung at the Eucharistic blessing or during Communion.
