Davide Perez’s Mattutino de’ Morti is considered the most significant musical work of the 18th century in Portugal. It was composed in 1770 and performed for the first time in the same year during the pilgrimage to the Sanctuary of Nossa Senhora do Cabo. After the first performance, it was adopted by the Brotherhood of Saint Cecilia in Lisbon as the main work performed during the annual celebrations in honour of the deceased musicians and it remained such until the end of the 19th century. Two antiphons Salve Regina and In paradisum deducant te angeli, which we will hear at the beginning and ending of the concert, come from the famous Conductus funebris by the Kraków composer Grzegorz Gerwazy Gorczycki.
