Latin American Music Fills St. Peter’s Basilica for Our Lady of Guadalupe


Francis brings son of Argentine composer to Rome for 50th anniversary of Missa Criolla.

For the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe, Pope Francis presided at Mass in St. Peter’s Basilica today, gathering representatives from Mexico and other parts of the Americas.

And for the parts of the Mass, the Argentinian Pope chose the Missa Criolla, or "Creole Mass," composed 50 years ago by his compatriot, Ariel Ramirez (1921- 2010). It was conducted by Ramirez’ son, Facundo Ramirez, and sung by Patricia Sosa, Jaime Torres, and the Roman choir Música Nuova (New Music).

Here is the “Gloria” of the Missa Criolla.
