St. Augustine Church was again the venue of another concert in Gaulitana: A Festival of Music 201. On Friday 15th April, the day Malta devotionally celebrates the feast of Our Lady of Sorrows, the church opened its doors late in the evening for an organ recital given by English organist Robin Walker.
Robin choose a versatile programme starting with early Baroque master Girolamo Frescobaldi and ending with contemporary Finnish composer Jyrki Linjama, with the two major works being Handel’s Organ Concerti No. 4 and Mendelssohn’s Sonata No.1.
The audience was led by Gaulitana artistic director, Mro. Colin Attard and Augustinian monk Fr. Peter Paul Cachia, who was a a very helpful hand in the organisation of this concert.
