Launching of "Resting Fields" CD

On the 27th of May 2005 the tranquil courtyard of the Medina Restaurant, in Mdina, was the perfect setting for the launch of an instrumental CD of relaxing music composed by Denis Calleja.

The CD, ěResting Fieldsî consists of six pieces, five of which were originally composed as background music for an art exhibition. These pieces vary in length between 10 and 15 minutes. The sixth piece, ëOld  Temple Streetí is dedicated to PC Mark Farrugia, a personal, long time friend of the composer, who was cold bloodedly killed on his own doorstep in this street. The composition, orchestration and mastering of the CD is all computerized. Proceeds from the sale of the CD, available from local record shops, will be in aid of the Foundation for Respite Care Services, Dar il Kaptan..

Some of the sponsors who attended the launching were Mr Pierre Aquilina from MIA, Mr Joe Attard from Delta Malta Ltd and representatives from Medavia.

Antonella Agius Micallef, from Dar il-Kaptan, addressed those present, who included friends, members of the press and the parents of the late PC Mark Farrugia.

Denis Calleja, who is also an artist and a poet, is seeking help to market this CD abroad. He may be contacted at and more information may be obtained from his website
