Charles Ferlus was born in Lodève, France in 1828 and was raised in Narbonne. He was a precocious student of music, having completed his music studies at the Toulouse Conservatory and then re-settling in Narbonne as a professor of music at only 17 years of age. He became the organist at the church of Saint-Paul-Serge, a post he held for nearly 50 years until his death in 1892. He was a friend of Aristide Cavaillé-Coll and Lefebure-Wély, with whom he held occasional concerts. Ferlus composed around 400 piano pieces, organ and harmonium works, and an orchestral mass.
