The funeral Mass for Sen. Edward Kennedy will include music performed by two of the finest classical artists in the world -- tenor Placido Domingo and cellist Yo-Yo Ma. Here are more details from the AP story:

The Rev. Philip Dabney, associate pastor of Boston's Mission Church, says Saturday's service will be a "regular Catholic funeral," with superb music.

In addition, a contingent from the Boston Symphony Orchestra and a soprano from New York's Metropolitan Opera will appear.

Several clergy members will be on hand. The Rev. Donald Monan, chancellor of Boston College, will be the principal celebrant.

The Rev. Mark Hession of Our Lady of Victories Parish on Cape Cod will delivery the homily, and Boston Cardinal Sean O'Malley will lead the final prayers of commendation.

President Barack Obama will delivery the eulogy.
