Anthony Chircop conducted the first-ever Maltese entry in the Eurovision Song Contest, ‘Marija l-Maltija’ by Joe Grech, in 1971 in Dublin; the song came last. He got his revenge twenty-three years later, in 1994, when he returned to Dublin as the conductor of ‘More than love’ (written and sung by Chris & Moira), which reached a fifth place in that year’s festival.
In due course, a more extensive biography of Anthony Chircop will be published on this website
