Biography

Estêvão de Brito (Serpa, c.1570 - Malaga, 1641) was a Portuguese composer of polyphony.

He was born in Serpa, Portugal. He studied music at the Cathedral of Évora with Filipe de Magalhães. On January 1597 he was already mestre de capela of the Cathedral of Badajoz (Spain), where he stayed until 1613. In that year, he went to the cathedral of Malaga and succeeded Francisco Vásquez bearing the same office as Cristóbal de Morales, precisely 50 years before. He stayed in Malaga until his death in 1641.

It is known that de Brito has composed many villancicos and cançonetas, most of them for the Christian feasts of Christmas and Corpus Christi. Unfortunately, these works were lost. However, the most relevant in de Brito’s work are the liturgic pieces: 4-, 5-, 6-, and 8-voice masses, motets, psalms, and hymns.

    The right name of portuguese composer is Estêvão de Brito! I did not find a picture of him, so I decided to put a photo of one of its contemporary interpreters, the Vocal Group Olisipo.
