Roberto Sierra’s Missa Latina was commissioned by the National Symphony Orchestra of Washington DC.
“Roberto Sierra’s Missa Latina “is remarkably organic in its expression: if it is music that sets out to be liked – perhaps loved – it is also a unified and, one suspects, deeply felt utterance of the heart… the Missa Latina will bring pleasure to a great many listeners. (Indeed, the ‘Sanctus’ could almost be turned into a pop song.)… I can’t imagine anybody who starts listening to the Missa Latina wanting to turn it off before it is over” The Washington Post
“Naxos continues to revive discontinued corners of the catalog, as heard in this disc (8559263) of works by Roberto Sierra… Sierra names Ligeti and Nancarrow as favorite influences… sly tangos and jazz elements [are] fused with Sierra’s modernist leanings.” Julliard Journal
