Teixeira: Te Deum

Teixeira: Te Deum

COR16009

£7.99

WINNER DIAPASON D'OR

This remains the only recording of this exuberant and unique baroque piece, and a multiple award-winner.

António Teixeira's extraordinary and grandly structured setting of the Te 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 an easy zest and breezy charm that is distinctively Portuguese, giving us a rare insight into musical life in Lisbon before the devastating earthquake of 1755.

Includes solo performances by Lynda Russell, Gillian Fisher, Catherine Denley, Catherine Wyn-Rogers, William Kendall, Andrew Murgatroyd, Michael George and Peter Harvey.
