Saint Cecilia (Latin: Sancta Caecilia) is the patron saint of musicians and Church music. Her feast day is celebrated in the Roman Catholic, Eastern Orthodox, and Eastern Catholic Churches on November 22. She is one of seven women, excluding the Blessed Virgin, commemorated by name in the Canon of the Mass. It was long supposed that she was a noble lady of Rome who, with her husband Valerian (us) and his brother Thateus, suffered martyrdom, c. 230, under the emperor Alexander Severus.
