Abstract: As a general comment one can say that the style adopted by Pace in his orchestral and chamber music compositions, which bears a modern trend, is in strong contrast with that of his lyrical operas, which is purely traditional. Normally, he does not follow any particular school of composition and he shuns the exagerated experiments and gimmicks used by modern composers. This notwithstanding, Carmelo Pace interprets in his compositions the atmosphere in which he is living and describes harmoniously the musical themes inspired to him by the actual moments of his existence. All this will serve to give to the story of Music in Malta, a contemporary snapshot, free from superimpositions and maddening notions, but blessed by discipline, harmony, tonality and estetic gusto, that make of music of virtue that pleases and is full of emotion. The following are some comments on a few of Maestro Carmelo Pace's best compositions.
