Liturgical Feast of the Sacred Heart 12th June 2015

Chorus Urbanus' engagements during festa week at Fontana started on Tuesday 9th June. Triduum was celebrated from Tuesday 9th to Thursday 11th, with Fr Michael Camilleri OP, Chaplain of the Basilica of Our Lady of Porto Salvo, Valletta, delivering three splendid triduum sermons on the Sacred Heart. 

During the three celebrations, the choir performed Haydn's Mass in B Flat Major accompanied by SATB soloists and String Orchestra together with various four-part hymns including the eponymous Tina l-Hlewwa tal-ilsna tas-Sema.

On Friday June 12th, the Liturgical Feast of the Sacred Heart, the choir performed Missa In Fractione Panis by John Galea, accompanied by brass ensemble. This mass was written specifically for the 25th Anniversary of the Presbyteral Ordination of Msgr Mario Grech and was later chosen by the Vatican's Commission for Church Music spearheaded by Mons. Marini to be performed during Pope Benedict's visit to Malta in 2010.

Farewell Service - Ms. Kitty Scerri 29th May 2015

The Chorus Urbanus family paid its last respects during the funeral service of Mrs. Kitty Scerri at Saint Augustine's Priory, Victoria, yesterday Friday 29th May 2015 at 4.30pm. Ms. Scerri is the mother of Architect Edward Scerri, the choir's President for these last 20 years. She was a loyal supporter of our Choir and her advice in turbulent and in good times was an inspiration to us all. In the words of our musical director John Galea "the great crowds inside the church and outside on the church parvis are a solid testimonial of the esteem of such a righteous lady!"
