Cappella Sanctae Catharinae’s annual Christmas concert is back! Gaudete offers some glorious festive choral music and beautiful carols.
Saturday 16th December @ 19:30 – Parish Church of St Nicholas, Siġġiewi
Sunday 17th December @ 11:00 – Church of Our Lady of Victory, Valletta
This year the choir will be joined by soprano Danielle Ciantar. The repertoire includes Giovanni Battista Crivelli’s 17th century Christmas pastorale Salvete Pastores, as well as such carols as I Wonder as I Wander and Personent Hodie. The choir will also be reviving an old Maltese carol, collected from Birkirkara two years ago, called Kant lil Betlem. Moreover, the choir organises these concerts to raise funds for various worthy philanthropic or heritage causes, and this year’s Christmas concerts will be no exception.
The Saturday evening concert in Siġġiewi will be helping to collect funds for the restoration of the chapel of Our Lady of Sorrows inside the parish church.The following morning, the choir will be collecting funds to help Din l-Art Ħelwa in their massive restoration project at the church of Our Lady of Victory.
Entrance to both concerts is free, but a retiring collection in aid of the respective churches will be made. For further information you can contact the choir via their Facebook page /CappellaSanctaeCatharinae or via email on firstname.lastname@example.org.
