On the liturgical solemnity of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of God, Chorus Urbanus was invited to animate High Mass celebrated by the Cathedral Chapter , Archpriest Msgr Joseph Sultana and the Parish Clergy together with the Bishop of Gozo, Msgr Mario Grech.

The choir performed Adeste Fideles during the Introit, John Galea's Missa In Fractione Panis, for 4 mixed voices a cappella alternated with organ interludes for the Gregorian chant of the Common from Missa de Angelis. Other carols by John Rutter, the Christmas Lullaby in particular was performed since its refrain is particularly suited for today's solemnity.
