St. James’ church in very central
The excellent choir directed by Greg Beardsell started off their concert – which consisted wholly of a cappella works – on the church parvis. In fact a few secular numbers welcomed the Grand Master of the Order of the Knights known as the Cavalleresco Ordine dei Guardiani delle Nove Porte, Fra Gaiancarlo Maresca, who had arrived in front of the church on a carraige in order to meet the Hon. Minister for Gozo, Giovanna Debono. After the honourable Minister saluted Mro. Beardsell and the choir upon being presented by Gaulitanus director Mro. Colin Attard, the choir continued their programme in the church.
The sizeable audience which listened attentively to the very interesting performance was led by Mro. Attard and St. James’ rector, Can. George Bezzina.
