Classical Fact

While in Rome during Holy Week, Mozart heard some music performed in the Sistine Chapel that he loved and wanted to bring home. However, it was owned by the Papal Choir and was guarded very closely. When the service was over, Mozart went home and copied the music perfectly from memory! Instead of being angry with Mozart, the Pope was so impressed that he bestowed upon him The Order of the Golden Spur.
