Although the CD can never replicate the emotions and spectacle of seeing one of flamenco's most popular artists and his troupe in the setting of a soaring medieval cathedral, this album is well worth getting for any flamenco aficionado.

Cleverly putting the words of a traditional Roman Catholic mass to spirited flamenco music, Paco Peña has produced a masterpiece. If you ever get the chance to see it live, don't hesitate.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Stunning 16 April 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I had known of Paco Pena as a Flamenco Guitarist for a long time but not as a composer.

A number of years ago I went to see him play in Oxford and the 'Missa' formed the second half of the concert.

I have never been in a 'classical' concert where the audience where brought to such a fever pitch that they were stamping and shouting by the end for more, and we got it!

The musical playing is impassioned and vibrant, the singing is truly awesome - and very loud in places (really crank up the sereo to hear it as it should be) and the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields Chorus' enjoyment shines through the choral sections.

As a piece of theatre this is a stunning piece combing a classical choir with flamenco guitar and drums, flamenco singing and dancing. If I had heard this on CD first I am not too sure what I would have thought, but do buy and enjoy - just listen to it a couple of times before making your mind up!

If there was a video or DVD I would definitely buy that too! (There is a DVD now but for some odd reason it only seems to be available in the US despite the fact it is English and Spanish performers and it is recorded in Spain. Check out US Amazon).

5.0 out of 5 stars Buy It!!! 12 Jan 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Mixing flamenco singing with a church choir may seem a bit of an odd combination but Misa Flamenca works brilliantly. Paco Pena's band and the Academy of St Martin-in-the-Fields choir have come together to produce an album that is simply stunning. I saw Misa Flamenca performed live and can honestly say that it was one of the best concerts (of any kind of music) that I've ever been to. If you like flamenco, you'll love this!

5.0 out of 5 stars Flamenco de la alma! 28 Dec 2004
By Karen T. Davis - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This CD takes the common people's music and puts it in to the form of a mass. The alma, corazon, and duende of the soloists is palpable, and the heavenly singing of the choir of the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields is breathtaking. There are parts that bring chills and goosebumps; other places make me wish I could dance flamenco style! This is not a CD for everyone. Most people who really love flamenco will appreciate it. Those of us with Spanish blood hear it and feel the tug of Spain in our hearts.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great music/terrible recording 11 Aug 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Misa Flamenca is great music wise, but this recording does not do it justice. The guitar is barely audable, you have to turn your stereo all the way up and its just about there, the solo singer is the only one with volume when he comes in he's to loud compared to everything else. They have to remaster that album; the recording mix is just terrible for all this great music.

Misa Flamenca received three standing ovations at Carnegie Hall, and Paco Pena is passionate, ethereal, and technically brilliant. I highly recommend this album.

4.0 out of 5 stars Unusual and wonderful grounding of the Mass in Spanish popular culture. 27 Sep 2011
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
The five stars reflect what I feel this album deserves rather than my own tastes. Personally I am not a fan of the extremely raw style of Flamenco solo singing, but I was still carried away by this CD. I cannot understand the reservation in one review of the guitar balance. This is not an intimate flamenco performance of solo voice plus guitar but a full scale Mass including a glorious choir. A thunderous guitar would have created a completely false and unbelievable balance. As it is the recording is clear, well defined and with a beautiful sheen on it. My only criticism would be that the soloist is a little too closely miked and prominent.

The music itself is as Spanish as you can get, grounded in both the popular and classical traditions of Spain, full of verve, but also capable of the most ethereal beauty in the choir parts reminiscent of Victoria and Spain's other renaissance wonders.
