Saint Cecilia was a Roman martyr venerated in Catholic, Orthodox, Anglican, and some Lutheran churches, such as the Church of Sweden. She became the patroness of music and musicians, because it is said that on her wedding day, as the musicians played, Cecilia "sang in her heart to the Lord”, and is represented in art with an organ, organ-pipes, harp or other musical instrument in her hand. A perfect talisman for any musician or music lover! 🎶🎵🎼
