Cardinal Bartolucci, former Sistine Chapel Choir director, dies at 96

 | 

Italian Cardinal Domenico Bartolucci, who had devoted most of his priestly life to music and served as director of the Sistine Chapel Choir for more than 40 years, died Monday at the age of 96.

In a telegram of condolence to Bartolucci's family and friends, Pope Francis described him as a "dear and esteemed priest, illustrious composer and musician, who exercised his long ministry particularly through sacred music, which is born of faith and expresses faith."

The pope said Bartolucci valued and promoted polyphony, "aimed at elevating the heart in praise of God."
