Music from Portugal’s Golden Age
March 11 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm EST$20 – $30
Pre-Concert Lecture 7 pm – Dr. Samuel Brannon
Duarte Lôbo – Missa pro Defunctis á8, motets by Cardoso, Lôbo, Lusitano, and Mendes
Portugal’s vast treasury of polyphony was lost in the Lisbon Earthquake and resulting tsunami of 1755, obliterating eighty-five percent of Lisbon’s buildings, including the major royal library and cathedral collections. Music from Portugal survives in publications scattered around Europe and the New World. Surviving works like Duarte Lôbo’s stunning eight-voice Requiem and the motets heard on tonight’s program offer a glimpse into the splendor that was late Renaissance Portugal. Highlights will include the eight-voice Inviolata, Integra et casta by Vicente Lusitano, the first published Renaissance composer of African descent, Asperges me by Manuel Mendes, and Music for Holy Week by Frei Manuel Cardozo.
