Celebrating Maria Rosa Coccia

7:00 pm - 8:45 pm
Llandaff Cathedral

By a decree of 1716, Pope Clement XI had ordered that anyone practicing music in Rome must be a member of the Accademia di Santa Cecilia and pass its entrance exam. In 1774 the Roman musician Maria Rosa Coccia (1759-1833), a pupil of Sante Pesci, passed the exam and was the first woman to become a maestra di cappella of Rome, but her gender never allowed her to gain a post.

Yn 1716 cafwyd gorchymyn gan y Pab Clement XI a orfodai pob perfformiwr  cerddorol yn Rhufain i fod yn aelod o’r Accademia di Santa Cecilia ac i basio arholiad. Yn 1774 llwyddodd y cerddor Rhufeinig Maria Rosa Coccia (1759-1833) yn yr arholaid a hi oedd y fenyw gyntaf i ddod yn maestra di cappella yn Rhufain, ond fe’i gwaharddwyd rhag cael swydd barhaol oherwydd ei rhyw.
