Doctoral Project
Livro de Obras de Órgão de Fr. Roque da Conceição: portuguese organ repertoire from the 17th century
This project aims to produce a new critical edition of the manuscript P-Pm MM43, Livro de Obras de Órgão de Fr. Roque da Conceição. It is hoped that a more in-depth analysis of this repertoire in its historical and interpretative contexts will allow its reintegration into the organ repertoire and bring new perspectives on Portuguese organ music in the 17th century.
