Duarte Lobo’s “Audivi vocem de caelo”

Audivi vocem de caelo is probably the most celebrated work by Portuguese composer Duarte Lobo (c.1567-1646). It was widely known in Europe during his time and later, still being performed by the “ancient music” english choral societies in early nineteenth century. The work is scored for six voices (SSAATB) and it comes from the 1621 Liber [primus] Missarum printed by Balthazar Moreto at the Officina Plantiniana in Antwerp.

It is a widely recorded work and the version presented here is a live recording by Officium Vocal Ensemble, directed by my good friend Pedro Teixeira.
