A Lecture by Fr. Aurelio Mule Stagno SDB

Imploring Our Definitive Redemption Through Song,
Between Anamnesis, Firm Faith and Sure Hope
With Particular Reference to Liturgical Celebration in English and Italian

Thursday 22 December 2011 at 7.30 P.M.

The Salesian Theological Institute/Ratisbonne, Rh Shmuel Hanagid 26

Aurelio Mulè Stagno started learning piano and music theory in his native Malta at the age of 6 and continued in Ireland where, in his early years as a Salesian of Don Bosco, he obtained the L.R.S.M. (Licentiate of the Royal Schools of Music) in piano performing and a B.A. (Hons.) in Philosophy and Music from Maynooth University. In preparation for the priesthood he pursued his theological studies at the Salesian Pontifical University in Rome, where in the year 2000 he defended his doctoral thesis (Christus cantor Patris et Ecclesiae) on the theological and liturgical implications of musical imagery used in «Mediator Dei», the 1947 encyclical on the liturgy. At the same time he furthered his musical studies in organ and composition through private tuition, leading up to a Diploma in Composition awarded by the “Licinio Refice” State Conservatory of Frosinone in 2003.

While in Rome he gained some experience as piano accompanist, organist, choral conductor, composer and arranger both within the Salesian University itself and in a parish context on the outskirts of the city, as well as on special occasions in St. Peter’s Basilica in the Vatican.

Since September 2000 he has joined the Salesian Centre of Theological Studies, initially in Cremisan and from 2004 in Ratisbonne-Jerusalem, as professor of Liturgy, Music Director and Registrar.

Tea, coffee and biscuits will be available from 7.00 P.M. on.
