All of the composers on this recording were students of the so-called "Évora School," founded at Évora Cathedral by Manuel Mendes. Cardoso and Magalhães were both pupils of Mendes, while de Brito and Morago studied under Magalhães. Rebelo was court composer to king João IV of Portugal, who patronized many of the Évora composers. The present recording takes as its theme pieces surrounding the Office of the Dead, featuring Magalhães' contemplative Requiem and Rebelo's Lamentations for Maundy Thursday, among other, smaller works.
