Francisco Antonio de Almeida

Francisco Antonio de Almeida was primarily a composer for the vocal styles. Press included opera, oratoria, people, motets and serenata. His functions include but aren’t limited by “In pentimento di Davidde,” “La Pazienza di Socrate,” “Le virtu trionfanti,” “Veni Sancte Spiritus,” “Benedictus,” “Miserere,” “Beati Omnes,” “O quam suavis est Domine,” as well as the opera “La Spinalba ovvero Il vecchio matto.” Almeida could capture the sensation from the story-lines in note-for-note harmonics forsaking not really the import from the self-employed lines like the top registers. Orchestration for him mainly included oboes, strings and horns.
