Fr. Carlo Marcelo launches 'Magnificat'

Multi-awarded priest songwriter/composer Fr. Carlo Magno Marcelo launches his newest album titled “Magnificat” featuring the talented music artist-singer Geli Federoso interpreting songs on the theme of transitions, on July 14, 2013 at 2:30 p.m. at the San Carlos Seminary auditorium.

A priest of the Archdiocese of Manila, Fr. Marcelo is known for composing songs to highlight important Church events and personages. Among his works are  “The Jubilee Song” (1996), Only Selfless Love (2003), Awit sa Ina ng Santo Rosaryo (2005).  Currently the Dean of Seminarians and Director of the Theology Department of the San Carlos Seminary, Fr. Marcelo has also held posts in the Archdiocesan Liturgical Commission, Manila. He co-founded the Jubilee Music Ministry in 1998 to promote Catholic music and to help institutions that need financial assistance especially in producing quality music albums.

As the daughter of the choirmaster at a parish, Geli Federoso, started singing at three years old and has not stopped since then, winning singing competitions along the way.   She was a four-year Kundiman champ in high school and a NAMCYA finalist. She has had concerts with renowned music artists. While able to tackle skillfully both pop and RB, Geli’s forte is Gospel-inspired songs. She sang the theme song of the Asia Youth Day 2009. 

The Magnificat Album combines the soulful composition of Fr. Carlo with the heartfelt rendition of Geli to finely delineate life’s transition moments. Featured in the album are these songs and their “transition moments”: Magnificat, sadness to joy; Ang Pananalig, darkness to light; Our Prayer: Serviam, Love will always Stay, Awit sa Ina, Higit sa Isang Pamana, death to eternal life; Lord, I seek Your Face, absence to presence; In this Place, being lost to finding a home; and Most Sweet Jesus complacency to mission.  ##
