Abstract: During Holy Week, church bells have customarily been replaced by a wooden clapper or scraper throughout the Christian world. In Malta, during this period, several different types of wooden instruments have traditionally been used. They are all known by the name cuqlajta, cuqlajqa or coklajta.
