Évora Cathedral

2017.04.18 Sé Évora (12)

Photo of the choir lectern at Évora Cathedral last April 18th. As I was seated in the choir-stalls listening to the Cathedral’s sixteenth-century organ following the guided tour to the instrument during the International Day for Monuments activities.

I wondered who occupied that seat in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. I was probably seated where some of the most distinguished Portuguese polyphonists were seated while choirboys in the service of the Cathedral. Manuel Cardoso, Duarte Lobo, Filipe de Magalhães, Estêvão de Brito, Estêvão Lopes Morago… and the list goes on.
