 The //Credo//, of which this Fugue is the finale, was begun by Cherubini in Italy in the year 1778-9 (while studying under Sarti) and finished at Paris in 1806. François-Joseph Fétis, in his work on Counterpoint and Fugue, says of this noble piece of composition by Cherubini: The //Credo//, of which this Fugue is the finale, was begun by Cherubini in Italy in the year 1778-9 (while studying under Sarti) and finished at Paris in 1806.

-> This fugue -- in which all the devices of its peculiar style are introduced with rare fidelity, notwithstanding the extreme difficulty arising from so large a number of voices -- had no model of proportionate development. The dread of wounding M. Cherubini'​s modesty prevents my giving utterance to all the eulogy that this fine production deserves. I can only urge all those who study the art of composition to examine it attentively,​ returning to it again and again, since they will be unable to discover its full merit upon a first inspection, or to comprehend all that such a fugue contains of scientific and artistic excellence. ​+> This fugue -- in which all the devices of its peculiar style are introduced with rare fidelity, notwithstanding the extreme difficulty arising from so large a number of voices -- had no model of proportionate development.
