‘World War I in Music ( … and Words)’ was the title of a concert performed at the Ministry for Gozo last weekend by the Gaulitanus Choir and friends.
A large and appreciative audience was led by American Embassy representative Mr Tom Schmidt and Gozo Culture official Mr Charlie Hili.
The programme featured music written during and associated with the Great War by British and American composers, which was basically vocal, except for an introductory march for piano duo (with Stephen and Colin Attard).
The various numbers were performed by the choir’s own soloists. English singer Terry Shaw, with Marthese Borg, were joined by up-and-coming singers Patricia Buttigieg, Stephanie Portelli and Annabelle Zammit, with Rob Ricards as the reciter.
The Gaulitanus Choir itself joined the fray in a couple of numbers and concluded the concert with a climactic final anthem.
The choir’s pianist Stephen Attard and the choir’s musical director Colin Attard alternated in accompanying the various numbers.
