Notes & Reviews:
Teixeira's extraordinary and grandly structured setting of the Deum was written for a New Year's Eve performance in 1734 in the Italian Church of his home city, Lisbon. Calling for eight soloists, five spaced choirs and a large orchestra, this lavish and ornate piece bubbles and sparkles through the text with a easy zest and breezy charm that is distinctively Portuguese, giving us a rare insight into music into musical life in Lisbon before the devastating earthquake of 1755.
