Pope Benedict XVI recently named ten priests in the Diocese of Providence to the papal honor of "Monsignor". One of them is Msgr. Anthony Mancini, director of the Gregorian Concert Choir. In 1991, Msgr. Mancini succeeded Alexander Peloquin as music director of the Cathedral of SS. Peter and Paul in Providence, a post he continues to hold today. In 2004, he was also appointed Cathedral rector. He is also a composer of many musical pieces, some which appear in the catalog of CanticaNOVA.
