Chopin

The Pope paid special tribute to one of his (and my own) favorite composers during his General Audience today:

Benedict XVI today recalled the 200th anniversary of the birth of Fryderyk Chopin, mentioning the musician when he greeted Polish-speaking pilgrims at today’s general audience.Chopin, born in Poland on March 1, 1810, is known to be one of the pianist Pope’s favorite composers.

Speaking in Polish, the Holy Father noted the celebrations of the Year of Fryderyk Chopin: “May the music of this famous Polish composer, who made such a great contribution to the culture of Europe and the world, bring those who listen to him close to God and help them discover the depth of man’s spirit.” (courtesy of Zenit)
