Matais de incêndios

composer
possibly by António Marques Lésbio
author of text
Manuscrito do Grupo de Mogi das Cruzes, 17th century

 
Matais de incêndios is a rare Brazilian villancico in Portuguese and accompanied by guitar and percussion. It has been suggested that this work may be by the Portuguese composer António Marques Lésbio, who was a singer at the Chapel Royal in Lisbon in the seventeenth century and achieved widespread fame. A contemporary described him in 1688 as the ‘Apollo of our times’. Much of his music was sadly destroyed in the Lisbon earthquake of 1755.
