Südamerikanische Weihnacht Die „Südamerikanische Weihnacht“ wurde als „Navidad Criolla“ vom Lehrer und Musiker Carlos Alberto Irigaray komponiert. Er lebte von 1916-1987 in Montevideo, Uruguay. Das Bild eines hochsommerlichen frohen und besinnlichen Volksfestes entsteht, beim Hören dieser Musik. Die Gesänge beruhen auf der Folklore des Rio de la Plata-Gebietes. Sie verbinden die Innigkeit des Weihnachtsgedankens mit der südamerikanischen Festfreude.
The wonders of Christmas in Rio De La Plata are brought to life by Carlos Alberto Irigaray's Christmas mass , a masterpiece of luxurious and mysterious music. This popular work conveys the spirit of the first Creole communities of the New World. Its composer, Carlos Alberto Irigaray, was a teacher in the poor neighborhoods of Montevideo, and was a fervent defender of the Rio De La Plata's folklore. La Navidad Criolla debuted during the Christmas celebrations of 1966 in Montevideo, with a wide range of performers including adults, children's choirs, soloists, and instrumentalists. Its international popularity then swelled after numerous performances in Europe under the direction of Kurt Pahlen.
