Each year, the Rabat-based NGO Fondazzjoni Paulus organises the AGAPE Festival, which includes a concert at the St Paul’s parish church in Rabat, as part of its efforts to promote sacred music, particularly that written by Maltese composers.

This year’s concert, which will see the MPO perform under the direction of the NGO’s musical director Christopher Muscat, primarily features works inspired by St Paul, including Holst’s St Paul’s Suite and Mendelssohn’s oratorio Paulus. But the concert’s focus is Maltese composer Paolino Vassallo, with a performance of his Salve Regina and his Missa in honorem Sancti Pauli.

Admission to the concert is free and open to the public.

LOCATION: St Paul's Collegiate Church, Rabat
