Coimbra: Il Seicento em Santa Cruz
Obras sacras de D. Pedro de Cristo e D. Pedro da Esperança
Vilancicos sacros inéditos

Musical activity in Coimbra during the 16th and 17th centuries revolved around the Cathedral, which brought together composers such as Pedro de Cristo and Pedro da Esperança, and the Monastery of Santa Cruz, a self-contained music community, which used its own members as singers, instrumentalists, composers and instrument makers. Santa Cruz has an abundant repertoire of spiritual vilancicos, one of the most original Iberian musical genres. This programme, almost all in a first modern performance, represents a significant sample of the precious 17th century Coimbra repertoire.

D. Pedro de Cristo
Incipit Lamentatio Jeremiae Prophetae
Lacrimans sitivit anima mea

D. Pedro da Esperança
Hodie nobis de caelo
O magnum mysterium
Beata Dei genitrix
Beata víscera Maria Virginis

Vilancicos espirituais
Que clarines son Pascoal
Bida de my bida
A dar belleza a las flores
Quando a la corriente
El pó con laços de plata
Quien es aquel sol hermoso?
Marabillas publiquen los cielos
Casuá casué
