A CD with the well-known oratorio ‘Pawlu ta’ Malta’ is once again on sale. Due to general demand a reprint has been produced to meet this request.
‘Pawlu ta’ Malta’ (lyrics by Prof Oliver Friggieri, and music by Prof Charles Camilleri) was first performed with great success at St John’s Co-Cathedral in 1985, and since then has been presented to packed audiences more than 20 times.
‘Pawlu ta’ Malta’ is directed by Rev Mro John Galea, who has been responsible for the direction of this work in various performances held at St John’s Co-Cathedral and other churches.
The soloists taking part are tenor Brian Cefai, soprano Miriam Cauchi, bass Anthony Montebello whereas Mro John Galea directs the orchestra and the St Julian’s Choir. The narrator is Dr Philip Farrugia Randon.
The reprint of this much-acclaimed work is meant to coincide with the 25th anniversary since the first performance of the oratorio at St Johns’ Co-Cathedral, as well as with the visit of Pope Benedict XVI in Malta. The edition is being sponsored by the Catholic Institute on the occasion of the 50th year since its inauguration.
‘Pawlu ta’ Malta’ can be purchased from the Catholic Institute, Floriana; D’Amato Record Centre, Valletta and Preca Library, Blata-l-Bajda.
The CD includes a booklet with the full text of the oratorio.
