Bravo Filipino at Barasoain Church
Malolos, Bulacan, Oct. 25, 2001

      The historic Barasoain Church in Malolos, Bulacan, may perhaps be remembered for a number of reasons. It holds the distinction of being the venue for the oath-taking of General Emilio Aguinaldo as president of the first Philippine Republic (where former president Joseph Estrada and vice-president-turned president Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo took their respective oaths in 1998).

      The church is also known for its elaborate ceiling and wall paintings, as well as for being immortalized in our ten peso bills.

      Residents can take pride in this architectural wonder, for it has become a site for concerts, such as a recent one when Bulakeños were captivated by the performances of four local artists.

      Occupying a large portion of the numerous pews, the crowd cheered at the "Fantastic Four," consisting of pianist Mariel Ilusorio Villarama, bass baritone Jonathan Zaens, cellist Wilfredo Pasamba and flutist Antonio Maigue. The group's show, dubbed as "Bravo Filipino," was a culmination of the CCP's Filipino Artists' Series' concert tour in celebration of its 15th anniversary.

      Prior to its Bulacan performance, the quartet had also performed at the CCP on July 31. This was followed by outreach tours in regional areas such as Bukidnon, Cagayan de Oro, Sigma, Capiz, Iloilo, Bacolod, Cebu and Angeles city in Pampanga.

      The crowd was awed by Pasamba's interpretations of Bach's "Prelude and Fugue from Suite No. 5 in C minor," and his renditions of Nicanor Abelardo's "Cavatina," as well as his duet with Tony Maigue on Heitor Villalobos' "Jet Whistle."

      Zaens, the lone vocalist, rendered soulful renditions of Gioacchino Rossini's "Gia d'insoluto ardore" from "The Italian in Algiers," Maury Yeston's "Unusual Way" from "Nine," and Abelardo's "Bituing Marikit." Statuesque and ravishing in a terno, Villarama regaled listeners with her pieces: Liszt's "Etude No. 3: La Campanella" and Buencamino's piece on Mt. Mayon. Her strong and expert fingers created fine tunes.

      Maigue's artistry on the flute, as he played Georges Enesco's "Cantabile et Presto," while being accompanied by Ilusorio on the piano, was evident. His performance of Martinu Bohuslav's "Trio for flute, cello and piano" with Pasamba and Ilusorio was likewise a hit, earning a standing ovation.

      The four later dished out a medly of Filipino folk chants and children's songs as their last number, which elicited more rounds of applause and bravos. At the end of the program, the crowd clamored for more, and the group essayed a rather strange piece called "Kanta ng mga Pusa."

      When asked about his feelings after the concert, Pasamba described the audience as being "appreciative" as in the other regions he toured. Concertizing in Barasoain for the first time, in fact, was an eye-opener for the cellist. As for their shows in other regional areas, he regarded the performance in Cebu a memorable one. "We brought the house down," he fondly recalls. And he now belives that being part of the outreach tour is an informative experience, too.



Barasoain Church of Malolos, Bulacan

      An hour's drive from Manila will take you to Barasoain Church where the first Philippine Constitution was drafted in 1898. Emilio Aguinaldo, the first president of the republic, proclaimed the ratification of the constitution from the balcony of the adjoining convent on January 21, 1899. The architecture of Barasoain Church engages the viewer for its curved facade, rose window and medieval bell tower. Floral motifs and frescoes of angels and saints adorn the interior.

Barasoain Church/Museum

      Barasoain Church of Our Lady of Carmel - From 1871 - 1978, a stone church was constructed to replace an earlier one made of wood, but an earthquake in 1880 ruined the church. Beginning 1885, the Augustinian Jian Giron contracted the services of a builder known only as Magpayo, who rebuilt the church from its foundations using variations of a circular motif. Proclaimed by the President of the Revolutionary Government, Emilio Aguinaldo, the church became the seat of the short-lived Philippine Republic and site of the first constitutional convention which convened with much fanfare from September 15, 1898 to the last week of February 1899 under the presidency of Pedro A. Paterno. Among the important measures passed by the congress was the Malolos Constitution drafted chiefly by Felipe G. Calderon. It was restored to its original splendor for the Philippine Centennial celebration in 1998. Also featured are the NHI Barasoain Light and Sound Museum and Ecclesiastical Museum. (source: wow philippines site) Beside the church are two museums: ***Barasoain Church Historical Landmarks History Museum Focuses on preserving the fruits of the Philippine Revolution as well as freedom and the Filipinos' heritage of democracy. ***Barasoain Church Ecclesiastical Museum Houses a collection of religious artifacts from all over Bulacan. Both museums wouldn't allow cameras/videos.
