On Lobo’s “Audivi vocem de caelo”

Following the post of Duarte Lobo’s six-part motet Audivi vocem de caelo I’m sharing a very interesting lecture by musicologist Owen Rees in Gresham College. Rees has been studying Portuguese polyphony since the 1980s, with particular emphasis on the sources of the monastery of Santa Cruz of Coimbra. Besides that he has also studied several interesting works, in which is included Lobo’s motet.

The development of this studied can be followed through an article in Early Music about musical antiquarism in London (available here). There is also the text of paper, of free access but without no notes (available here).
