The Global Climate Change Music Project
Because climate change is a planetary problem … composers from every country on the planet contributed 4 bars of music to create one composition that speaks for the earth.
Christopher Muscat is one of the 187 composers featured in this project. Click here for a preview of the project.
It is indeed difficult to tackle the Stabat Mater, but Muscat's work impresses with its freshness
"In this recording, Muscat guides the Malta Philharmonic Orchestra, his distinguished soloists and the listener with authority and passion through his very personal vision of Mary's harrowing journey."
