After Albuquerque: Music of Portuguese Malacca 1511-1641


Time Out says

Here's a different way to visit Malacca's history: listen to music by Cardoso, Escobar, Lobo, Brito and Machado – composers who were famous in both the Portugese and Spanish empire. Malacca was the first European colony in Southeast Asia and Cappella Martialis seeks to reimagine the music that might possibly be heard in this newly conquered and newly Christianised city. Pieces are sung in Portuguese, Castilian and Latin (full texts and English translations are provided in the programme booklet) and accompanied by a selection of instruments such as the vihuela, lute, viola da gamba and more.

Admission is free, with a retiring collection to help defray the venue rental and programme printing.
