by Mary Frances Reza

Enrich's worship with beloved bilingual psalms and complete Spanish recordings of Misa Santa Fe from Mary Frances Reza.

Mary Frances Reza is one of the most recognized and respected Hispanic composers in the U.S. Her music opens hearts and lifts voices to sing of our salvation. Now, for the first time, hear eight of her most cherished bilingual psalms, plus complete Spanish recordings of her Mass setting, Misa Santa Fe—all on one CD!

Featuring a festive, Southwestern rhythm, “Salmo 117: Aleluya/Psalm 118: Alleluia” makes a wonderful common psalm throughout the Easter season or response for the Gospel acclamation. “El Señor Es Mi Pastor/The Lord Is My Shepherd” possesses an inviting melody that is ideal for the entrance or Communion procession. With its lilting waltz movement, “Gusten y Vean/Taste and See” is an irresistible call to the Eucharist.

The colorful melodies and contagious rhythms of Misa Santa Fe combine to draw parishioners deeper into the liturgy. From the Penitential Act and Gloria to the Holy and Lamb of God, enjoy full recordings of this charming Mass setting—all in Spanish!

Blending Spanish, Mexican and Native American styles, the music of this beloved composer is the epitome of New Mexico culture.
