1803 Adolphe Adam – French composer and teacher (d.1856); best known today for his ballets Giselle (1841) and Le corsaire (1856, his last work), his opera Si j'étais roi (If I Were King, 1852) and his Christmas carol Minuit, chrétiens! (1844), set to English lyrics as O Holy Night (1847); among his students were Delibes and other influential composers.

1904 Leo Arnaud – French-born American composer and arranger (d.1991); best known for Bugler's Dream, one-time theme music for American coverage of the Olympics and considered a symbol of the Games; begins with a timpani cadence that is soon joined by a stately theme in brass.
