Main Programme

Venue: Monastery of Cós

Vere Dominus Est

Originating in a geographical area that corresponds today to the north of Belgium and the south of the Netherlands, the so-called Franco-Flemish School developed from the 15th century onwards as one of the most prominent currents of polyphonic vocal music. The motto of the programme presented by the Cupertinos vocal group in this 2022 edition of Cistermúsica consists in exploring some of the main lines that reveal the influence of Franco-Flemish music in the Portuguese musical environment of the 1500s and 1600s. In this sense, we propose a journey through the iconic legacy of Jean Mouton (c.1459-1522), Damião de Góis (1502-1574), Jacques Arcadelt (c.1507-1568), Pierre de Manchicourt (c.1510-1564), Pedro de Cristo (c.1550-1618), Philippe Rogier (c.1561-1596), Duarte Lobo (c.1565-1646) and Filipe de Magalhães (c.1571-1652).
