No 2: Luke 11: 2b-4; No 3: Antiphon for the Blessed Virgin Mary

Lobo de Mesquita was active throughout the gold-mining region and among his many titles was organist and choirmaster of the church Nossa Senhora do Pilar in Ouro Preto. The three prayers Padre nosso, Ave Maria and Gloria offer simple, ‘secret’, expressive devotion and certainly help explain his popularity. They were edited by André Guerra Cotta, who is currently a professor at the Fluminense Federal University.
