Artist: Pietro da Cortona – c. 1620 – 1625


Saint Cecilia is the patroness of musicians and Church music because, as she was dying, she sang to God.


She is one of seven women, excluding the Blessed Virgin, commemorated by name in the Canon of the Mass.


It is supposed that she was a noble lady of Rome who, with her husband Valerian, his brother Tiburtius, and a Roman soldier Maximus suffered matrydom in about 230, under the emperor Alexander Severus.


Her feast day is November 22.
