600 people who lost loved ones in the pandemic attended a funeral mass at Seville Cathedral on Thursday. The mass was celebrated by Archbishop Juan José Asenjo Pelegrina and included a performance of Mozart’s Requiem by the Seville Symphony Orchestra and the University Choir.

The vast cathedral covers more than 11,000 square metres and has a capacity of 4,000 people. But, with only 600 people attending, the event was held in strict safety conditions. A team of professionals had created a detailed plan with very clear interpersonal distances between each member of the 27 orchestra musicians and the 53 choir singers to respect the official guidelines.
