I am a member of the oldest choir in the world. As early as the 5th and 6th centuries there are records of singers being part of the papal entourage, today, some 1,500 years later, the role of the Sistine Chapel choir (officially, the Cappella Musicale Pontificia) remains the same, namely, to sing for the pope.
