Te Deum Mass

7th September 2015

IMG 0045Now it got into SCJ’s annual calendar that on the eve of National Victory Day, the choir animates the ‘Te Deum’ Mass at the Basilica of Xagħra which will be celebrating its village feast.

However, this time around, the male section alone performed the High Mass that started at 8.30am and was officiated by H. E. Mgr George Bugeja, the newly installed Bishop for Libya. The repertoire included various plain chant pieces amongst which the ‘Missa de Angelis’.

Though the performance seemed a bit different than usual, many appreciated the choice on considering the fact that since some time ago, the ‘Missa Cantata’ used to be in plain chant. Bass Albert Buttigieg led the male cantors while Dec. Mario Curmi played the organ.
