Ode to Saint Cecilia
Ode to Saint Cecilia tells the dramatic story of a modest young woman from Rome whose life was transcended time to influence poets, composers, sculptors, and painters. A patron saint to some, a muse to others, Cecilia has inspired George F. Handel, John Dryden, Henry Purcell, Stefan Maderno, John Waterhouse, Paul Simon, and scores of other artists over the past 20 centuries.
