He also composed oratorios, ballets, orchestral works, incidental music, piano pieces, songs etc. The opera "Le roi de Lahore", his nearest approach to a traditional grand opera was finished in 1877 and was one of the first new works to be staged at the Palais Garnier.

Among his students were Gustave Charpentier and Ernest Chausson.
