The excellent Animae Gospel Choir performed an incredible "Searching for the Soul" concert at the Basilica of our Lady of Visitation in Gharb yesterday the 28th of April 2009.
The basilica was chock full of people, locals and foreign residents, and the singers were very well received. They sung 8 gospel songs – mostly American gospel – but the excellent "Missierna" (the "our Father" prayer) was sung in Maltese. The excellent sound ambience at the Gharb Basilic enhanced this most excellent concert.
This choir was very well received and the audience gave them a very big applause at the end. The group re-sung the "Missierna" as an encore and were rewarded with a standing ovation at the end of the concert.
The next event in the Festival will be on Friday 1st May 2009: The Art of Longing by Soprano Emma Darling to be held at the Exhibition Hall, St. Francis Square at 2000 hours.
