Music that makes you melt

(5 out of 5 stars)

"I've never heard about Ramirez's Misa Criolla, until our chamber choir discussed the possibility of adding the Misa Criolla to our repertoire. The first recording I listened to was the Philips CD with Jose Carreras - I had goose bumps all over and was hooked by this wonderful piece of music. However, nothing prepared me for the Zamba Quipildor recording, which absolutely blew me away.

In my opinion Quipildor has the most quintessential voice for this piece of work. The choir does not dominate Quipilador and they compliment each other in a way, which is the way I personally think Ramirez would have wanted it to be. When this recording is playing, you get the South American vibe and it feels as if you are actually sitting in a Cathedral in Argentina.

The choir is wonderful and produces a sound which is representative of "peasants" with some musical sense. On some recordings the choir drags down the piece, being too overbearing with a low quality sound and being totally off pitch. I love this recording and it is a definite asset to my collection of classical music."
