Popey guy sways to musical strain

VATICAN CITY (AP) — Pope Benedict XVI has expressed his gratitude after a concert of sacred music by Vivaldi and Verdi conducted by maestro Riccardo Muti at the Vatican.
...Muti kissed the pope's hand before Benedict handed him a red box with a pontifical medal.
...Napolitano gave the pope an 18th-century violin.
It must be wonderful to be the Queen.
