Musicologist Who Reinvigorated Jesuit Musical Tradition Dies

WESTON, Mass. (AP) – The former director of the Boston College Jesuit Institute whose research helped to revive the Jesuit religious order’s musical tradition has died. Rev. T. Frank Kennedy was 67.
A cousin of Kennedy’s confirmed he died of advanced pancreatic cancer Friday at the Campion Health Center, a Jesuit facility in Weston, Massachusetts.
Kennedy was most recently a visiting fellow at London’s Oxford University where he had been since 2014.
The former director was a musicologist who edited, produced and professionally recorded four baroque operas associated with the early Jesuits. He was a founding member of Boston College’s music department. He served as director of the Jesuit Institute from 2002 to 2014.
