LECTURE & LITURGY: CAPPELLA SANCTAE CATHARINAE - TENEBRAE

6:00 pm - Lecture at Palazzo Falson, Mdina A lecture on the Musical and Liturgical perspective of the Tenebrae - the Divine Office for the Holy Week delivered by choirmaster Alex Vella Gregory and Fr Charlo Camilleri O.Carm at Palazzo Falson.

7:30 pm - Tenebrae Celebration at the Carmelite Priory Church, Mdina The lecture will be followed by the Tenebrae celebration at the Carmelite Priory with the participation of Cappella Sanctae Catharinae, Malta's only all-male choir. The liturgy combines plainchant psalmody, readings, and polyphonic responsories all framed within the ritual extinguishing of candles. The church is plunged into the darkness leaving only one candle lit, symbolizing the hope brought by Christ's Resurrection.

Booking is necessary only for the public lecture at Palazzo Falson which will be followed by the liturgy celebration at the Carmelite Priory, open for the public. Please reserve your place by sending an email to bookings@palazzofalson.com or by phoning on 21454512.
