One of Italy's best-known orchestras, the Santa Cecilia is going from strength to strength under the inspired leadership of Sir Antonio Pappano.
Santa Cecilia – or Saint Cecilia – is the patron saint of music. The first report of a music festival held in her honour was in Normandy in 1570. Her feast day became an occasion for concerts and festivals that inspired music from the likes of Purcell, Charpentier, Handel, Gounod and Benjamin Britten.
