Abstract: Francesco Azapardi ( 17 48-1809) lived in Malta during the second half of the eighteenth century. He was professionally trained in Naples for four years and remained in this city working as a composer, teacher and conductor until 1774. The Cathedral authorities subsequently employed Azapardi in Malta as an organist. His duties included composition, playing the organ and teaching singers. Azapardi's workload increased significantly following the retirement of his predecessor Benigno Zerafa. Azapardi was a prolific composer and he composed new music regularly for the liturgical services of the Cathedral Church. In addition, he taught many students including Nicolo Isouard and produced two important compositions treatises for his students.
