Misa de los Inmigrantes (Mass for the Immigrants) (Piano/Vocal Score)

Misa de los Inmigrantes (Mass for the Immigrants) (Piano/Vocal Score)

Product Number: 7520

Composer: Mollicone, Henry



“Misa de los Inmigrantes may be performed omitting the narration sections between the choral movements, although it is my preference that they be included. The work was written as a tribute to all immigrants in the hope of raising awareness of the injustices in our present immigration system. Its narrative depicts the true story of Guadalupe and her family, and their difficult journey from Mexico to the United States in search of a decent life. My wife, Kathy, interviewed Lupe several times, as Lupe shared all the details of her odyssey for the purpose of making her story public. Her experiences are not unique; they are, in fact, similar to those of so many others who are forced by poverty and violence to leave their homes and seek a better life in America for themselves and their families.” —Henry Mollicone

“The Misa de los Inmigrantes was composed as a consciously social-action work to honor immigrants in general and to help bring attention to the plight of illegal immigrants. The mass has an unusual construct. It interweaves a narrated story of a single immigrant, accompanied by piano, with a setting of a Spanish text of the traditional mass, set for small orchestra, chorus, and solo mezzo-soprano…The music for the mass takes its rhythmic and melodic sources from Latin-American music, but has the flavor of the original voice that is Henry Mollicone. I can report a spontaneous standing ovation from the approximate 1,000 people that filled the mission for the event. It was a privilege to be present for this world premiere, and I can recommend it to any music lover.” - San Francisco Classical Voice, S. J. Lowens
