Description

Coro Ricercare e Orquestra Sinfonietta de Lisboa
Free admission, m/6

The Ricercare Choir, Sinfonietta de Lisboa and soprano Elsa Cortez, conducted by Vasco Pearce de Azevedo, will be performing a Christmas concert that will alternate between renowned composers of orchestral and choir music, such as Fauré and Mendelssohn, and young contemporary Portuguese composers, ending with traditional Christmas songs from different parts of the world.
The last concert of this year’s Christmas in Lisbon will be at the São Vicente de Fora Church, located on the same spot that King Afonso Henriques ordered a primitive temple be built, also dedicated to São Vicente. This saint was proclaimed patron saint of Lisbon in 1173, when his relics were transferred from the Algarve to a church outside the city walls (hence the name; fora means “outside” in Portuguese).
This church is considered the greatest architectural construction of the Philippine Dynasty and served as a model for subsequent religious constructions. It symbolised, in essence, the Christian re-founding of the city and became, over the centuries, one of the most important convents in Lisbon.
