Fil-ħlewwa taMejju is the title of the upcoming concert by The New Choral Singers, which is being held on Saturday, 21 May in the cloister of the Priory of St Dominic, Rabat (Malta). The concert is being organised in collaboration with the Humanitas Foundation and the Priory that is hosting the event.

The repertoire for this concert is a selection of sacred compositions some of which are being performed by the choir for the first time. The programme includes excerpts from Mozart's Vesperae Solennes de Confessore and Vivaldi's Magnificat as well as music by other celebrated composers such as Thomas Tallis, Orlando Gibbons and Johann Sebastian Bach. Local works by the 18th century composer Francesco Azopardi and Mauro Farrugia will also be sung including a new arrangement of the much-loved Fil-ħlewwa taMejju.

Irina Fedcenko-Carbonaro will be accompanying the choir on the piano.

The concert starts at 7.30pm and entrance is free of charge, however, a retiring collection in aid of the recent restoration works undertaken within the Priory will be greatly appreciated.
