Oscar-winning Italian composer Ennio Morricone this week will premiere a Mass he composed to mark the 200th anniversary of the restoration of the Jesuit order and named for its most illustrious member, Pope Francis. The Jesuits said in a statement that the 86-year-old Morricone will conduct “Missa Papae Francisci” on Wednesday at the main Jesuit church in downtown Rome, leading Rome’s Symphonic Orchestra and the choirs of the Santa Cecilia Academy and the Teatro dell’Opera. Francis isn’t expected to attend. He won a lifetime achievement Oscar in 2007.
