David Davies gives the inaugural concert on the new (Michael Farley) organ at the Rotunda Church of St John's Xewkija, Gozo, Malta

Saturday 6 May

About 70 people attended the recital by Andrew Millington in Michael Farley's workshop last October for a new organ destined for the Rotunda Church of St John's Church Xewkija, Gozo.   

The organ is fully installed and David Davies will be giving the inaugural concert on Saturday May 6th (possibly to be attended by the Maltese President who has already paid a visit).

No tickets are required for admission and there is no charge.

The Church is a magnificent building under a dome claimed to be one of the largest 12 in the world by some statistics. Nevertheless for a small village it is quite a dominant feature!  The reverberation is 11.5 seconds somewhat different from the workshop.

If anyone feels adventurous and would like to spend a few days in Malta and/or Gozo and come and hear David play they would be most welcome.  We can probably find a time to show members the organ and perhaps other Maltese organs in the area.

The temperature in May hovers around a comfortable 22c with plenty of sunshine. 

Cheapest flights are with Ryanair from Bristol or Bournemouth two or three times a week.  Air Malta fly daily from Heathrow or Gatwick.

Several familiar faces will be there and if advice is needed on travel or accommodation please contact Michael Farley.
