Marc-Antoine Charpentier has composed four "Pie Jesu": H 427 (1675), H 234 (1670), H 263 (1690), H 269 (1695 ?). The settings of the Requiem Mass by Luigi Cherubini, Gabriel Fauré, Maurice Duruflé, John Rutter, Karl Jenkins, Kim André Arnesen and Fredrik Sixten include a "Pie Jesu" as an independent movement. Of all these, by far the best known is the "Pie Jesu" from Fauré's Requiem. Camille Saint-Saëns said of Fauré's "Pie Jesu" that "Just as Mozart's is the only 'Ave verum corpus', this is the only 'Pie Jesu'."
