Coro da Banda de Alcobaça

Main Programme

Venue: Parish Church of Benedita

Et in terra pax

Vocal ensemble

A time spectrum of three centuries separates the first works of this concert. Three centuries, three composers, three languages, three works of very different styles but with a common theme: the human being and its connection to nature. The enchantment of the night over the Earth and its inhabitants, through the contemplation of the superb landscapes of Spain, ending with the relationship, always troubled, between humans and the animal world. Then, the divine exaltation: the central work of the concert is the famous Gloria KV 589 by Antonio Vivaldi, one of the most inspiring works of sacred vocal music.

Vera Santos, musical direction
Catarina Fortunato, piano
Maria Marques, soprano
