We prove that the Dirichlet series of Rankin–Selberg type associated with any pair of (not necessarily cuspidal) Siegel modular forms of degree $n$ and weight $k\ge n/2$ has meromorphic continuation to $\u2102$. Moreover, we show that the Petersson product of any pair of square–integrable modular forms of weight $k\ge n/2$ may be expressed in terms of the residue at $s=k$ of the associated Dirichlet series.
