CD Reviews

Wonderful
M. Walker | Philadelphia, PA USA | 12/12/2009
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This is a masterpiece. Not as "Latin" as I expected, but contains interesting cross-rhythms. Well-performed, luscious music that would satisfy the yearnings of a classical music aficionado, spiritual listener, or one with more modern tastes."
MSO & Chorus Stunning Grammy Nominated Recording!
James Sampson | MILWAUKEE, WI, US | 01/27/2010
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Missa Latina 'Pro Pace' composed by Roberto Sierra has stunning performances by the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra, the MSO Chorus, with soloists soprano Heidi Grant Murphy and baritone Nathaniel Webster under the direction of Andreas Delfs. All performers are up to the challenges of Mr. Sierra's composition. Vital orchestral direction and playing throughout drives the piece to its affecting finish. Tonal beauty in the complex choral writing is present to the last note and Ms. Murphy and Mr. Webster give dramatic interpretations of the solo writing throughout. With its exciting rhythmic and tonal textures, Mr. Sierra's composition is sure to enter the orchestral/choral repertoire in short order. Highly recommended listening (and programming)!"
Missa Latina, Grammy nominee

"This is an exciting new addition to the classical music scene. The recording was made from the national premiere of the work, in consultation with the composer. The chorus is outstanding. The Latin rhythms and wonderful harmonies make it great listening even if you are not into the classical literature. You've never heard a mass like this one."
