ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Mass for Our Lady of Guadalupe

This extraordinary work was composed in just two and a half months. In 1999 the Mexican Episcopal Conference organised the Second National Eucharistic Congress, which was to be held in May 2000. For such a relevant event –the First National Eucharistic Congress was celebrated in 1924 and was not repeated due to political censure– Venus Rey Jr. was commissioned to compose a Mass. Although the time was brief, the composer accepted the commission. The composition began the last days of January 2000 and ended a few months later, in Easter. Misa Guadalupana was first performed in the inauguration of the Second National Eucharistic Congress, on may 5th, 2000, at the Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe, in Mexico City, before an audience of over twelve thousand, including bishops from Mexico and the Americas, and the Apostolic Nuncio. The work was performed by Hidalgo State Symphony Orchestra, the Choir of the Autonomous University of Hidalgo and Ana Caridad Acosta as soprano soloist, all under the baton of Mtro. Fernando Lozano.

In 2010, Venus Rey Jr. made a revision of the work. Although no structural changes were made, the orchestration was improved, enriched and embellished. In 2011 the composer submitted this new version of Misa Gudalupana along with Sinfonía Jesuita, to the Congress and asked for governmental funds in order to record and perform these works. The Congress granted the funds.

In July 2013, Venus Rey Jr. wrote a new finale for the Mass. The composer used materials from the first movement (Cristo Luz del Mundo) and two very well known Marian hymns: Santa María del Camino, by Juan Antonio Espinosa, and La Guadalupana.

This new version of Misa Guadalupana was first performed with great success in the Cathedral of Puebla, on July 25th, 2013. The performers were the Puebla State Symphony Orchestra, the Normalista Choir, Mónica Chávez as soprano soloist, and Mtro. Ferndando Lozano.

Misa Guadalupana is a very important contribution to the Mexican symphonic repertoire.
