D. Bartolucci
Domenico Bartolucci (07/05/1917 - 11/11/2013), an Italian composer (born in Borgo S. Lorenzo, Florence). He was an Italian Cardinal of the Catholic Church. He was Director Emeritus of the Sistine Chapel Choir and the Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia, and was recognized in the field of music both as a director and a prolific composer. Considered among the most authoritative interpreters of Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina, Bartolucci led the Sistine Chapel Choir in performances worldwide, and also directed numerous concerts with the Choir of the Academy of Santa Cecilia, including a tour of the former Soviet Union.
On 20 November 2010, Pope Benedict XVI elevated him to the College of Cardinals. Because Bartolucci was over the age of 80, he never was eligible to vote in any Papal conclave.
