29 April 2007. Good Shepherd Sunday. The Diocese of Cubao’s Commission on the Youth led by Fr. Steve Zabala and Fr. Jojo Monis invited the Jesuit Music Ministry to perform in their first Diocesan Youth Assembly at the covered courts of Christ the King Seminary in E. Rodriguez. The crowd’s response to our performances was overwhelming. Our songs were well-received. The young crowd sang and danced with us. The notable performances were as follows.
Hangad sang Magnificat and The Easter Journey
UP Filipiniana Dance Group: Mr. Van Manalo choreographed The Christ Child from the album, Pasko Na! They also performed the opening number, Children of Easter Morn and the finale, Papuri.
Reymond Sajor, Philippine Idol Season 1 sang Sa Yo Lamang, Sandaling Pinakahihintay, and Panunumpa with the young screaming and singing with him.
BukasPalad sang I Seek You for I Thirst and Humayo’t Ihayag — the audienced danced with them.
Musica Chiesa (Church Music) played Children of Easter Morn, Psalm 100, Stand By Me Still, Prayer to a Beautiful God and the medley of JMM songs. They accompanied Reymond Sajor and performed the last salvo: Papuri. Musica Chiesa performs every 11:00 am Sunday mass in UP.
Canto Cinco (C5) sang Make a Joyful Noise/Psalm 100, Stand by Me Still and the JMM Medley of I will sing forever, Anima Christi, Paghahandog, Ito ang Araw, Awit ng Paghahangad, and Tanging Yaman.
