Original Recording Format: DSD 64

This new recording of the ever so popular Misa Criolla was made to mark the fiftieth anniversary of it’s creation in 1964. It’s a sparkling, genuinely Latino version, reminiscent of the original recordings.

In this vibrant new edition, Ramírez’ popular mass is embedded in 17th- and 18th-century vespers, villancicos and hymns, all examples of ‘spontaneous’ expressions of popular religion and folk culture. Ramírez’ composition indeed draws on an ancient tradition of popular devotion and isdeeply rooted in Latin America’s folk music. Surprisingly, no new recorded versions of any importance have seen the light since the early nineties of the last century. With their classical schooling, fed by roots in the musical tradition of Latin America, the musicians of Música Temprana are very well placed to fill this gap.

Additional Binaural

For this album we chose to record in Binaural as well. This is a perfect solution for headphone users.The recordings are made with the dummy head of Neuman, the KU-100. On a headphone this gives a surprisingly realistic image and it gives you the feeling of being at the session.This idea to develop an extra Binaural catalogue in DSD is initiated and supported by Rivasono in The Netherlands.

Listening to the Misa Criolla performed by Musica Temprana (DSD 64 from native DSD) was a new experience for me with the Crimson / Denominator. Most DACs I have listened to with this recording have a slight hardness to the sound, but not the Crimson. The stereo version I listened to was vibrant and a highly rhythmic musical composition. The Crimson reproduced the acoustics of the recording venue in an engaging soundstage that drew me into the music. The resolution of low level detail was exemplary with macro and micro dynamics beautifully reproduced. But what I enjoyed the most was the way the Crimson / Quotient was able to reproduce multiple voices. The DAC seemed to breeze along when the musical passages became more complex and never lost its ability to retain focus while maintaining a relaxed presentation.

NRC 9 december 2014

Swinging mass “Misa Criolla” is full of secrets!

Nederlands Dagblad 21 nov. 2014 5 out of 5

De meeste leden van het ensemble komen uit Latijns-Amerika. En dat is goed te horen. Ze hebben geen enkele moeite met de soms lastige, onregelmatige ritmes.
Het is bijzonder te horen hoe goed de in 19e en 20e eeuwse werken het barok instrumentarium zich laat combineren met moderne instrumenten. Música Temprana doet dat werkelijk schitterend!
De bijzondere manier van zingen maakt deze versie van de Misa Criolla heel authentiek en geregeld ook heel emotioneel. Het is alsof alle frustratie van armoede en nood moet worden uitgeschreeuwd.

Glarean Magazin, okt 2017

“Conclusion: This recording of Ramirez ‘”Misa Criolla” and all Latinamerican-Christian songs i is an authentic, convincing and faithful recording of reality, and impressive testimony of South America’s popular, folkloric culture in touch with the Christian-European tradition. A bridge between the worlds.”

Luister febr 2015 5 out of 5

5 stars and 10 in Luister!
What we have here beats everything we heard earlier. Classically trained voices with roots in the Latin American music, with precision, but above all with passion and conviction be performing both baroque and modern sounds. The sound quality of this recording meets the highest demands.

Parool 9 sept. 2014 5 out of 5

De Misa Criolla is een direct voortvloeisel van barokmuziekpraktijk die nog altijd springlevend is. De zangers zingen alsof hun leven ervan afhangt, en zo hoort het ook.
