This video footage shows live recording of the traditional procession that took place at the Mosta Parish Church on August 15, 2011. It is one of the many Maltese cultural religious feasts.

The tradition has been passed down for some 500 years since the Medieval era, celebrated by the Knights of St John.

Besides the procession, the video also covers, streets decorations, band marches, showing segments of live singing of Ave Maria by a tenor on the parvis of the church and another version sung by Thea Garrett and aerial fireworks.

We've used this music to compliment our video:

Con Gioia Cantiamo (We sing with joy) - by Ferdinando Camilleri
O Del Cielo Regina (O Queen of Heaven) - Music by Anton Miruzzi, lyrics BY Anthony Azzopardi.

Both above played by the Nicolò Isouard Band of Mosta under the direction of Mro Emanuel Spagnol.

It was accompanied by the Shalom Choir Mosta under the direction of Mra Rita Vassallo.

The Antifona: Virgo Prudentissima (Very Prudent Virgin) - by Mro Paolo Nani.

The Nicolò Isouard Band and the St Mary Philharmonic Society, both of Mosta accompanied the procession.

The Very Rev. Fr Mario Tong was in charge of the Feast.
