Misa Azteca is a staged, concert piece for orchestra, choir, soloists, and pre-Columbian percussion ensemble. It is based on the “ordinary” and “proper” of the Roman Catholic High Mass and verses from the Cantares Mexicanos, a collection of pre- and post-conquest verse of the Mexica (the Aztecs). Misa Azteca is sung in Latin, Spanish, and Nahuatl. Misa Azteca hybridizes two cultures and religions into an eight-movement, oratorio-style, musical celebration for orchestra, choir, and soloists.
