Ode for St. Cecilia's Day (HWV 76) is a cantata composed by George Frideric Handel in 1739, his setting of the poem by the English poet John Dryden.

The title of the oratorio refers to Saint Cecilia, the patron saint of musicians. The main theme of the text is the Pythagorean theory of harmonia mundi, that music was a central force in the Earth's creation.

The premiere was on 22 November 1739 at the Theatre in Lincoln's Inn Fields, London.
