Coro Hispano de San Francisco: Musica Criolla

Song NameComposer
-Misa CriollaAriel Ramirez

-Flor De ChanaraOscar Sixto Bareilles

The Coro Hispano de San Francisco presents an exciting program including one of the most popular works of the Latin American choral repertoire, Ariel Ramirez's Musica Criolla. Since its composition, the Misa has been a showpiece for choirs around the world. In it, Ramirez has created a work at once spiritually exalting and deeply rooted in the folk idiom of his people. It's architectural simplicity, subtlety of detail, and vibrant colors make a moving experience which the Coro Hispano has lovingly and fully captured in this recording. Navidad Nuestra, a six-movement Christmas suite is a long-standing favorite with Coro Hispano's audiences. Rounding out the program is Oscar Bareilles' brilliant choral triptych Flor de Chanar -which is an ideal foil to Ramirez' masterwork. One sets the classic texts of the mass, the other deals with folk poems of love - but both drawing deeply from the rhythms and melodic modes of the people of Argentina.
