Presentation of the CD “A reforma tridentina e a música no silêncio claustral”

a reforma tridentina_capaI will be participating next tuesday, 16 June 17:30, in the oficial presentation of the CD “A reforma tridentina e a música no silêncio claustral: O mosteiro de S. Bento de Cástris”, which will take place at the church of this Cistercian monastery in the outskirts of Évora.

The CD, edited by Movimento Patrimonial pela Música Portuguesa, follows the work in the research project Orfeus, which is now concluding and focused on the musical sources of the feminine Cistercian monastery of S. Bento de Cástris.

For the recording of this CD, I formed the Schola of Ensemble Eborensis – a sub-project in the musical activities of my group – made of feminine voices in order to perform and, consequently, record several chants (total of 37 tracks) from the choirbooks of S. Bento de Cástris, that include the great “O” antiphons for Advent and music for the feast of the Purification of the Virgin and St Bernard.

The Schola of Ensemble Eborensis will perform some of the chant included in the CD during the presentation.
