António Leal Moreira: Te Deum

The tradition of singing the Te Deum on December 31 as an action of thanksgiving for the year gone by gave rise to one of the most impressive ceremonies of liturgical music in eighteenth century Lisbon. After last year’s success of the first ever historical reconstitution of one of these ceremonies, the Gulbenkian Orchestra and Choir return to the St. Roch church, this time with a Te Deum by Leal Moreira, composed in 1786. The Portuguese state television network RTP  will once more transmit this concert live, thus associating itself to the renaissance of this grandiose tradition.
