After lunch at the Convento de São Paolo, participants move on to the little city of Estremoz. The oldest part of the town is a citadel, encircled by medieval walls and rising through winding alleys to a glorious group of castle, palace and church – the Igreja de Santa Maria, venue for the second concert with Cupertinos.

This noble building, a cube with four great classical columns supporting the vault, a characteristic form of the Portuguese Renaissance, is the perfect venue for a programme of Marian music of the 16th and 17th centuries.

The unparalleled devotion the Catholic Church grants to Mary, mother of Jesus, has its roots in the early days of Christianity, and was consolidated by the Council of Trent (1545–1563). The magnitude and versatility of Marian themes have inspired some of the most moving and glorious moments in Portuguese music throughout the 16th and 17th centuries.

The composers featured are António Carreira, Francisco Garro, Pedro de Cristo, João Lourenço Rebelo and Duarte Lobo, and the concert includes pieces discovered by Cupertinos alongside well-known works.

Built around his Requiem Mass in four parts, the programme focuses on two of the most pungent moments in the liturgical year, Lent and the Office of the Dead. Embracing some of the most dramatically charged of liturgical texts, this plays to Cardoso’s strengths by highlighting his particularly expressive style.

The concert is performed three times in three different places.

At the Convento de São Paolo, it is scheduled for the hour before dinner on the day of arrival in the hotel’s own serenely beautiful chapel. Cupertinos move on the following day to the very pretty little convent chapel in the hotel at Vila Viçosa, with polychrome wall tiles and painted ceiling. The venue in Elvas is the 18th-century Igreja dos Terceiros, richly decorated and with an exceptionally elaborate altarpiece, reached by a lovely walk along the northern ramparts.

The festival starts with some of the very best polyphony of Portugal’s Golden Age, a monographic programme devoted to Manuel Cardoso (1566–1650). Cardoso was the presiding genius of Portuguese Renaissance music, perhaps the greatest Portuguese composer of all time. 

Built around his Requiem Mass in four parts, the programme focuses on two of the most pungent moments in the liturgical year, Lent and the Office of the Dead. Embracing some of the most dramatically charged of liturgical texts, this plays to Cardoso’s strengths by highlighting his particularly expressive style.

The concert is performed three times in three different places.

At the Convento de São Paolo, it is scheduled for the hour before dinner on the day of arrival in the hotel’s own serenely beautiful chapel.
