About

Duarte Lobo: Missa pro defunctis a8 (selected movements) Joao Lourenco Rebelo: Lamentations of Jeremiah with motets by Manuel Cardoso, Pedro de Cristo and Filipe de Magalhaes Join us for an evening of rich Lenten music from early 17th-century Portugal, all in the ideal acoustics of St George's, Bloomsbury. The serene sonorities of Duarte Lobo's consoling Requiem setting will be set in relief by the intensity and drama of motets by Magalhaes, Cardoso and de Cristo. The main event, however, is a rare chance to hear Rebelo's magisterial setting of the Lamentations - a tour de force of expressive, chromatic double-choir writing.
