Ensemble Eborensis, August 28

2014.08.28 Igreja dos LóiosTomorrow, (August 28) 19:00, I’ll be singing with my group Ensemble Eborensis at the Church of St John Evangelist, commonly known as Church of the Convent of Lóios, at Évora. This is a concert to help raising funds (food supplies) for an associacion called Pão e Paz (Bread and Peace) that helps less fortunate persons in the city of Évora, cooking about 300 daily meals at the association’s refectory. The cost of entry to the concert will be a good (anything that can be useful for the preparation of the daily meals by this association).

We will be performing our programme “Masters of Évora Cathedral: Sacred vocal polyphony of 16th and 17th centuries”, featuring works by Mateus d’Aranda, Manuel Mendes, Estêvão Lopes Morago, Francisco Martins among others. The Church of Lóios, although smaller in size compared with other churches in the city, is quite unique for its rich decorations featuring beautifully crafted tile pannels, which are really worth visiting as the photo shows.
