This concert features the dynamic, energetic “Misa Criolla” by Argentinian composer Ariel Ramírez. The Mass was one of the first to be composed in a language other than Latin after the Second Vatican Council allowed the use of vernacular in Catholic churches. The Washington Post wrote that it was “widely regarded as a stunning artistic achievement, [that] combined Spanish text with indigenous instruments and rhythms.” Spanish Baroque music of the California missions also is included on this program.
