Carols by Candlelight 2018


by Stefan Attard

Collage CBC 2018 copySchola Cantorum Jubilate, one of the prominent choirs in our country, is synonymous with the annual event of ‘Carols by Candlelight’. However, this is quite misleading since the choir is committed all year round performing in different venues and presenting different productions. Last September, the choir was on tour in the Czech Republic where it performed in renowned venues amongst which the churches of St. Gall and Our Lady of Victories and at the dominant Cathedral of St Vitus, St Wenceslas and St Adalbert.

Canta e Cammina... Sing and Walk


by Stefan Attard

Canta-e-Caminna-Poster1How much essence of humanity can fit into few hours? This event, Canta e Cammina, endorsed by the Valletta 2018 Foundation, is a rousing library of emotional parable of life: full of joy, nostalgia, maturity, serenity, hope, enjoying the intensity of life to the full through a unique and magical moment of artistic beauty, vibrant awakening and musical power.

Schola Cantorum Jubilate, under the direction of Marouska Attard, will perform, both a cappella and also accompanied, in various inspiring  surroundings and significant spots at St Mark’s Priory – The Augustinian Cloister, in Rabat Malta. It is an accompanied journey by a selected informative tour guide and professional reading. The event is designed to be responsive, roving, and innovative, while placing the emphasis on the process itself and the close interaction with the audience during the performance. This is an innovative concept that will require the choir and attendees to move from one place into the other.

The repertoire for the soirée will include pieces by Mozart, Bach, Zelenka, Pitoni, Caruana, Aguiar, Buti, Rutter and Gjielo. All this music combined with the magnificent architecture - that endows the cloister - together with specific literature will undoubtedly present another unforgettable experience for those who have all forms of art at heart. Moreover, to compliment the event, there is going to be an exhibition in the foyer. ‘PROFILES…Human and Divine’ by artist and iconographer Nathanael Theurma who will depict the saintly and the human characters.

This is going to be an exclusive event and those interested are asked to book in advance. Admission fee is of 10€ for the up keeping and conservation of the cloister and church. For reservations please contact augustiniancloister@gmail.com or call 99844628/79061945
