This year for Easter Sunday the choir at our church had quite a treat. We got to sing parts from a Mass, Missa de Cataluña, composed in the California Missions. I feel head over heels in love with the unpretentious Kyrie and was hoping to find an mp3 link to show everyone. I found this one (scroll down to the third CD) which gives you a fair idea, expertly sung. My only quibble is our choir director advocated a slightly slower and much smoother execution, which I definitely prefer--this one has a bit too much dotting and cutting in it to perfectly suit my preconceived notions of the piece.
