"Considero la tarea de Bernardo Latini como uno de los aportes más importantes al repertorio coral de música popular argentina.
En sus arreglos une la sencillez de factura con profundidad en la comprensión del material en juego. Su arreglo de la Oración del remanso, por ejemplo, me ha dado momentos de enorme alegría
como intérprete. Es de agradecer."
Director del Grupo de Canto Coral Buenos Aires, Argentina
"Ho avuto il piacere di conoscere il M° Bernardo Latini in occasione di due miei viaggi in Argentina e successivamente di averlo mio ospite e collaboratore in Italia. Ho potuto immediatamente apprezzare la qualità artistica del suo lavoro, la grande conoscenza tecnica dello strumento coro che ben si esprime nei suoi lavori corali e nel suo attento lavoro di direttore e concertatore. Bernardo Latini è un musicista completo, raffinato ed elegante: qualità che ben si evincono dalla lettura della sua Musica."
Direttore di coro, direttore d’orchestra e didatta. Ars Cantica Choir & Consort. Gesualdo Consort of Gesualdo. Milano, Italia.
"Bernardo Latini conducts in a clear and understood manner, and
the voices are not forced under his instruction. I shall be looking forward to have Conductor Bernardo Latini working with my ensembles again, a sentiment shared with my musicians and singers."
