Ensemble Eborensis, June 30

 I will be singing and conducting Ensemble Eborensis next June 30th, 21h00, in the church of Saint-Aignan, one of the principal churches of the French city of Chartres. This is the opening concert of the Summer festival “ChartrEstivales” promoted by the city which will have around 50 concerts until mid-August. The concert is also one of the several interchange activities between Chartres and Évora, following the gemination process of the two cities.DSCN5513

Besides several plainchant from the sources of the Cistercian monastery of S. Bento de Cástris, the programme comprises mostly sacred vocal polyphony of composers from Évora Cathedral, which feature (in my opinion) several interesting works for an uncommon vocal formation: 2 superius, alto, and tenor, like a setting from the Lamentations by Manuel Cardoso.


  • Antiphon: Assumpta est Maria (Choir book P-EVad Mús. Lit. 35)
  • Duarte Lobo – Asperges me
  • Antiphon: Speciosa facta es (Choir book P-EVad Mús. Lit. 68)
  • Antiphon: Dignare me laudare (Choir book P-EVad Mús. Lit. 68)
  • Antiphon “ad Cantica”: Hodie Maria virgo (Choir book P-EVad Mús. Lit. 68)
  • Estêvão Lopes Morago – Lumen ad revelationem
  • Filipe de Magalhães – Jesu Redemptor [I] a 4
  • Estêvão Lopes Morago – O bone Jesu
  • Manuel Cardoso – Jod. Manum suam
  • Francisco Martins – Vinea mea electa
  • Estêvão de Brito – Quia vidisti me, Thoma
  • Manuel Mendes – Alleluia

Here’s a promotional video of last year’s video mapping festival “Chartres en Lumières”, which is also part of the city’s activities.
