In late November 2003 we invited our friends and visitors to join us in paying homage to Berlioz on his 200th birthday, 11 December 2003. On that day we placed a bouquet of flowers on Berlioz’s tomb at the Montmartre Cemetery and tagged to it a list of those who had given us their names. On our return from Paris, we created this special bicentenary homage page which includes the list of names and a few photographs of Berlioz’s tomb taken on the day. 

Fin novembre 2003 nous avons invité les visiteurs à notre site à se joindre à nous pour rendre hommage à Berlioz le jour du bicentenaire de sa naissance, le 11 décembre 2003. Ce jour-là nous avons déposé une gerbe sur la tombe du compositeur au cimetière Montmartre avec une liste de ceux qui nous avaient donné leurs noms. Nous avons créé cette page spéciale pour commémorer cette journée; elle comprend la liste des signataires ainsi qu’un choix de photos.

The Hector Berlioz Website was created by Michel Austin and Monir Tayeb on 18 July 2007; this page created on 15 December 2003.
