The Chorus Urbanus of Gozo said that it has been invited to animate the sacred liturgy during a memorial mass for the repose of the soul of President Emeritus Prof. Guido de Marco.
The liturgy will be presided by H.L. Mgr Mario Grech, Bishop of Gozo, at the Cathedral in Victoria, this Saturday, the 2nd of October, starting at 7.15pm. Members of the de Marco family and friends will be present.
The Chorus Urbanus under the direction of Dr John Galea will perform various motets proper to the occasion.
The Chorus Urbanus said that the loss of Prof De Marco was deeply felt by the choir members, most of them remembering well the unconditional support that Prof de Marco always showed towards the choir. They said that during his presidency, Prof De Marco never failed to attend the annual Grand Christmas Concert organised by the Chorus Urbanus during which special collections used to be made for the Community Chest Fund that is traditionally chaired by the First Lady, the President’s wife.
