The Laudate Pueri Choir was formally set up in 1976 by Rev. Dr Joseph Farrugia at the parish basilica of St George in Victoria. Nevertheless it knows its roots to a much earlier and very deeply established tradition of sacred music performed at the principal parish church of Gozo. The main objective of the choir has been the cultivation and promotion of sacred music within the liturgical context, with particular emphasis on sacred polyphony. In this regard, the choir has established for itself a sound reputation as leading interpreter of polyphonic music of both the classic and the contemporary idioms. The choir is also the first Maltese choir to perform as an all female choir (SSAA).
