Carols by Candlelight 12th edition with Schola Cantorum Jubilate
|Email item||Print item||
There are still some tickets left for the Schola Cantorum Jubilate's performances of 'Carols by Candlelight,' a magical, festive concert that should be included in everyones Christmas schedule.
'Carols by Candlelight' was introduced by the Schola Cantorum Jubilate in 2003. It is a major Christmas event which attracts locals and foreigners, some saying that they even plan their holidays around the same dates just so they can attend this event.
The Gozitan choir, under the direction of Marouska Attard succeeded in creating an event in the true spirit of Christmas. Such spirit, even with a spiritual touch, manages to recreate childhood memories and above all supports life.
This year's programme includes various traditional carols and other less popular pieces which when sung by the Christmas-passionate choristers transmit a sense of joy and peace.
The audience will be able to listen to compositions by Prætorius, Adams, Davies, Gruber, Chilcott and by Sir David Willcocks, who passed away some months ago and whose name is synonymous with Christmas musical arrangements.
Another special setting is being prepared for this year's edition of 'Carols by Candlelight' which once again will be held at St. Augustine's Priory in Victoria.
The cloister of the same priory, will later serve as a banquet hall where delicious Christmas plates will be served after being delicately prepared by the Ta' Frenc Restaurant Chefs.
An exhibition will be taking place in the foyer by young artist Manuel Farrugia. As in previous editions, all proceeds will be in aid of Guzeppa Debono Home of Ghajnsielem which caters for pro-life activities among other educational services.
'Carols by Candlelight' will be held on Friday, the 11th and Saturday, the 12th of December at 7.30pm at St. Augustine's Priory in Victoria Gozo.
Tickets are on sale from D'Amato Records Shop in Valletta and from Bargate Bookshop in Victoria, Gozo.
