Manuel Cardoso’s extant works comprise five volumes of sacred choral music, published in Lisbon in the first half of the seventeenth century. Luís Toscano and Cupertinos here reveal a selection of the very finest.


Though not as opulent as its more richly scored companion, [Cardoso’s] four-voice Requiem is a compelling work, especially when sung with this degree of commitment. It’s a quality that shines throughout the recording. ... The well-known Sitivit anima mea is as compelling as ever. ... This is the first recording by Cupertinos for Hyperion and it is a pleasure to have a Portuguese ensemble tackle its native repertory. The sound is bright and privileges the higher voices, the lower ones being light baritones rather than basses.  Fabrice Fitch
