The Brass Band Plays for St Augustine

On our recent trip to Valletta on the Mediterranean island of Malta we were lucky enough to watch/participate in some of the celebrations for the upcoming feast of St Augustine.

For Cee’s Black & White Challenge this week I’d like to share a few pictures of a local brass band in Valletta leading a procession down to the church of St Augustine (or Santu Wistin as he is called in Maltese).

Once at the church we were invited inside by the locals to watch a ceremony where a VERY large statue of St Augustine was carried outside to be blessed and then carried back in again. (But that’s for another blog post which won’t be in monochrome! It was colourful in the extreme). But for now, the brass band…..
