On Wednesday 21st March at 7.30pm the Jubilate Deo Choir will be performing its annual Passiontide concert at the Parish Church of Naxxar.During the first part of the evening the choir’s own Cappella Gregoriana will lead us through the various stages of the Holy Week in an original concept by the choir’s Music Director Christopher Muscat that will see experiments on the traditional plainchant of the Holy Week liturgy combined with original works for percussion, composed and performed by Renzo Spiteri.The second part of the evening will be dedicated to the monumental Via Crucis by Franz Liszt which gives a dramatic musical interpretation of the fourteen stages of the Cross with the participation of mezzo-soprano Claire Massa, baritone Louis Andrew Cassar and organist Ronald Camilleri who will be playing the historic 1775 Santucci organ.Entrance is free but tickets must be reserved by e-mail on email@example.comThe event will be streamed live on this web-cam.
Ahhh, thanks Mario, I'd never have guessed that. I haven't seen that done before, it looks labour intensive but really sets the tone for the church and season. Thanks once again.
Dear Liam, the black decor is not paint, but damask which is a decorative cloth of the colours according to the liturgical seasons. It is used year in year out, so the expense is not over excessive, since the damask has been done years ago. Obviously you need more than an extra pair of hands to hang them, but fortunately there are a number of helpers who volunteer their help for this job.
I have to ask. Why do you paint the interior of the church so much? I'm guessing it's possibly to do with the liturgical seasons, but the effort and cost of painting the interior, is this not excessive? Here, we put up a few banners, cover a few statues, but don't change the decor. No insult is intended. I love your church web camera!
Why are there photographers taking their photos of nearly everybody during the Holy Mass??
Finally the audio problem has been solved. Whilst again apologising, we thank you for your patience.
Lovely to be able to be part of the Holy Mass via this medium. It must be wonderful for those folks who are unable to attend Mass. Love to everyone. x

Recent frequent video and/or sound interruptions on the Naxxar webcams are due to an intermittent fault in the internet line. The service provider is working on this, and the problem should hopefully be solved in the coming days. We cannot do much internally. Sorry for the inconvenience.
