Digitisation, Not only Performances!
In two weeks’ time, two major Vella oratorios will be performed during the Three Palaces Early Opera & Music Festival: ‘Rewwixta’ on the 4th November at the St Paul’s Metropolitan Cathedral, Mdina whilst ‘Il-Belt Rebbieha’ will be the Festival`s closing event, performed on the 12th November 2022 at St. Lawrence Parish Church, Birgu.
Tickets for the events may be purchased via the Festivals web page (https://www.festivals.mt/ttp)
Family Vella is very grateful to Festivals Malta for their constant support in ensuring that such works are performed, after lying dormant for 30 years.
Such a collaboration however extends beyond, since following Festivals Malta generous assistance, both works – each circa one hour long – have now been fully engraved and digitised, and can thus be more easily preserved and enjoyed by future generations.
This is in line with one of Family Vella`s main objectives, that is the digitisation of the entire list of classified works composed by Maestro Joseph Vella. Other digitisation projects are also in the pipeline.
