In the year of our Lord one thousand seven hundred thirty-seven, on the nine-teenth day of month of December, Signor Antonio Stradivari, a widower, aged about ninety-five years, having died yesterday, fortified by the Holy Sacraments and comforted by prayers for his soul until the moment he expired, I, Domenico Antonio Stancari, Parish Priest of this Church of S. Matteo, have escorted to-day his corpse with funeral pomp to the Church of the very Reverend Fathers of S. Domenico in Cremona, where he was buried.
