Saint Cecilia is the patron saint of church music (and the blind). In the late 17th century, she was celebrated every 22nd of December by London’s musicians with banquets and a newly composed ode. Handel revived this tradition in 1739 with his cantata Ode for St. Cecilia’s Day. The cantata is characterised by its exuberant choral and orchestral movements, interspersed with arias where the soloists are invited to excel in improvised embellishments and coloraturas.
