Saint Cecilia, Martyr at Rome

Nicolas Poussin St Cecilia

St Cecilia, by Nicolas Poussin (1594–1665). From Wikipedia.

O blessed Spirit of God, by whose aid and grace thy servants skilled in music and holy song have beautified the worship of thine house: Unite us, we pray thee, in the concert of thy praises with the heavenly choirs, that rest not day and night from thy perfect service; to whom with the Father and the Son, the one eternal God, be dominion and glory, world without end. Amen.

¶ Or this:

O God, who as on this day didst cause thy blessed Virgin Saint Cecilia to attain unto the heavenly palm of martyrdom: Grant us, we beseech thee, so to follow her example that we may be accounted worthy to be admitted into thy presence; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
