Feast of St. Cecilia

Today is the Feast of St. Cecilia, the patron saint of musicians.  She is one of the seven women mentioned in the Canon of the Mass.  Her relics are contained here in the basilica named for her in Trastevere (Rome).  The place of her martyrdom is also in the basilica, on the right side near the back of the basilica.
