Notes and Editorial Reviews

The premature death of King Sebastião in 1578 placed Portugal under Spanish rule. This provoked the exodus of a number of Portuguese composers who subsequently remained in the service of the great Spanish cathedrals, leaving us a vast and splendid output. On the present recording, the ensemble 'A Corte Musical' reveals the incomparable music of these emigrants, these 'flowers' born in Lisbon who were once the pride of the Portuguese people but are today sadly forgotten by the public.
