Cantique de Jean Racine (Op. 11) is a work for mixed chorus and piano or organ by Gabriel Fauré. Written by the nineteen-year-old composer in 1864-5, the piece won Fauré the first prize when he graduated from the École Niedermeyer and was first performed the following year on August 4,

1866, with accompaniment of strings and organ. It was first published around 1875 or 1876 (Schoen, Paris, as part of the series Echo des Maîtrises) and appeared in a version for orchestra (possibly by the composer) in 1906.

This version was transcribed for Harp, SATB Choir and String Orchestra.

The scoring of this transcription is compatible with that of the Fauré Requiem (1893 version), edited by Flavio Regis Cunha, so that the Cantique may be used as a companion pioece to the Requiem in performance. Ad libitum parts for 1st and 2nd violins (mostly doubling the viola parts) are included with the instrumental material but not shown in the score.
