Leonardo García Alarcón returns to the works of David Perez, Neapolitan composer who settled in Portugal in the mid eighteenth century at the service of the royal court of D. José I. Perez became known mostly for religious music, with Mattutino de’ Morti as one of the most notable examples. The piece debuted in 1770 at the Nossa Senhora do Cabo Espichel sanctuary (or “Pedra Mua”) and earned the praise of novelist William Beckford who said he “had never heard, and probably would never hear again, such soulful music”.
