SAINT CECILIA has long been regarded as the Patron Saint of Music and Musicians.
For many years it has been the custom in various countries to celebrate the Praise of Music on November 22-the Festival of St. Cecilia. ' From Harmony, from Heavenly Harmony, this Universal Frame Began '

THE Ode on St. Cecilia's Day is one of Handel's most characteristic and lovable works.
It was fortunate that Handel's genius was not hampered by the literary companion-ships that it had to endure. He could write sublime music to the most ridiculous words. Although the Ode on St. Cecilia's Day was written by so considerable a poet as Dryden it docs not take high rank as literature and some of its phraseology is unintentionally droll.
