Yesterday morning Mary Dixon reported that Pope Benedict XVI will be stepping down at the end of this month.

Since he’s on the way out, Buzzfeed took a look back to 2009 when the Vatican first released an official playlist thru MySpace.

Originally included as part of a series of celebrity playlists via Myspace UK, this list features what the Vatican calls, “a perfect mix of classical, world and contemporary music. The genres are very different form each other, but all these artists share the aim to reach the heart of good minded people.”

Here is a look at the full playlist:

The Vatican Playlist
“Advocata Nostra” – Music From The Vatican
“Uprising” – Muse
“Causa Nostrae Laetitiae” – Music From The Vatican
“Il Mare Mi Salva” – Rossomalpelo
