Today is the 78th birthday celebration of Pope Francis. As he declared in the recent interview for La Nacion, Missa Criola, by Ariel Ramirez, is one of his favourite pieces of music. Here is what he says: ‘When I heard ‘Misa Criolla’ for the first time I was a student, I think I was studying theology at that time, I can´t remember well. I really liked it! I enjoyed ´Lamb of God’, which is magnificent. I will never forget that I heard Mercedes Sosa singing it.’ Here it is, in celebration of Pope Francis, one of my heroes, and also for your enjoyment.
