RAMIREZ'S CULT WORK 'MISA CRIOLLA' FROM WASHINGTON

At the end of July 2004, The Choral Arts Society of Washington (conducted by Joseph Holt) recorded Ariel Ramirez's 'Misa Criolla' in Bethesda, Maryland, USA.

The 'Misa Criolla' (1964) is unique in its combination of traditional Latin-American rhythms and the Catholic mass. Particularly prominent are melodies and rhythms of Argentina though Bolivian influences, too, are brought to bear - most notably the deployment of the 'carnaval cochabambino' in the Sanctus. It is scored for tenor, chorus, percussion, guitar and piano.

This recording is coupled with the 'Missa Luba', a mass in the Congolese style, arranged by the Belgian priest, Father Guido Haazen and the African singers with whom he worked.
