Concert in honor of Pope Benedict
September 27, 2012
The Augustinus Institute of the Diocese of Würzburg, Germany, has sponsored a concert in honor of Pope Benedict featuring an oratorio on St. Augustine. Wilfried Hiller of Monaco composed the music, and Winfried Böhm, professor emeritus of pedagogy at the University of Würzburg, wrote the libretto.
The contemporary work, said Pope Benedict, manifests the “struggle of man and his search for what is most intimate and true.”
The concert took place on the evening of September 26 at Castel Gandolfo, the Pope’s summer residence.
