Description

Thais is the title of, and the lead character of, an opera in three acts, first performed in Paris in 1894, by Jules Massenet (1842-1912).  The Meditation is an entr'acte dividing the first and second scenes of Act 2, thus not integral to the plot or action.  It is often heard in churches, expecially at weddings, but the Meditation, like the opera itself, is only tangentially related to the Christian faith.  Nevertheless, it is of a convenient length for service music. 

Originally for violin and orchestra, the Meditation has been transcribed in numberless ways.
