During this episode of Newsbook.com.mt‘s online cultural programme ‘Take a Bow‘, Coryse Borg interviews musician and composer extraordinaire Alex Vella Gregory about Passio – a concert by male choir Cappella Sanctae Catharinae who will be performing in Gozo for the first time as part of its tenth-year anniversary performances.
Passio will include sacred choral pieces from the 16th and 17th centuries by Martini, Viadana and De Victoria, including a setting of the Passion according to St Matthew by De Victoria and interspersed with Gregorian chant and polyphonic choruses.
The concert will be taking place on Saturday 13th April at 7.00pm at the Cathedral of the Assumption in Rabat, Gozo, which is currently undergoing restoration works.
Entry to the concert is free against a retiring collection which will partly go towards the restoration of the trompe d’oeil dome painting held at the Cathedral.
