Misa Criolla

Misa Criolla

The Misa Criolla is Argentinian composer Ariel Ramírez' most famous work. Written in 1963-64, it is a mass for tenor, mixed chorus, percussion, keyboard and native Argentinian instruments.

Entirely based on traditional rhythms (chacarera, carnavalito, estilo pampeano), it is one of the first masses to be celebrated in a modern language - being contemporary to the Second Vatican Council. It was not publicly performed until 1967 in Düsseldorf, Germany, during a European tour which eventually brought Ariel Ramírez before Pope Paul VI. There are many famous recordings of the piece; here we present the solo voice of José Carreras (1990).
