After the success of the first CD in this series (Sacred music by Maltese composers of the 19th century), this is the second CD with sacred music of the early 20th century. The composers continue the tradition of their predecessors, composing very melodious music, conforming to the norms of church services. The programme was again recorded by a recording staff of Gega New.
The release of two more CDs is currently being prepared:
Sacred Music of the 18th Century
Sacred Music of the 19th Century – Vol. 2
The projects are carried out with the support of APS Bank, Malta
Recorded at the Seminary in Rabat, Malta, December 2003
