Pope Benedict XVI has abolished the Vatican's traditional Christmas concert because he does not share his predecessor's taste for pop music and wants to avoid scandal, the Italian media has reported.
"Pope Ratzinger prefers Mozart and Bach to 'pop' music and thus, after 12 years, the traditional Vatican Christmas concert comes to an end," the daily La Stampa said on Thursday.
The annual charity concert, organized since its inception by the Prime Time Promotion events agency, will be transferred to Monaco beginning this year, the paper reported.
