Schola Cantorum
da Catedral de Santarém

Founded in August 2012, through the initiative of the Cathedral of Santarém and the Municipality of Santarém, the Schola Cantorum of the Cathedral of Santarém (SCCS) is a sacred music school for boys and girls aged between 6 and 18 years old. Its academic curriculum focuses on the teaching of Choir and Organ subjects, and is associated with frequent performances in the liturgy, makes SCCS a unique institution in Portugal, and a protagonist in the reactivation of the practice of quality liturgical music. In 2014, following their participation in the International Congress of Pueri Cantores in Paris, Schola Cantorum promoted the creation of the Portuguese Federation of Pueri Cantores, affiliated with the International Federation of Pueri Cantores.

Traditionally, the Schola collects the vast and prominent corpus of Western sacred repertoire and resumes the master-apprentice system, which allows the acquisition of skills in a professional context. A section of professional adult singers performs musically together with sections of non-professional adult choristers and younger singers, with weekly rehearsals at the Santarém Music Conservatory.

SCCS, which operates mainly in the Cathedral of Santarém itself, participated in Pueri Cantores congresses in Paris, Rome and Fátima, as well as providing musical services in several locations in Portugal. They performed in concert with the Santa Cecília Music Academy, the Queen Elizabeth’s School, and the Children’s Choir of the University of Lisbon, among others.

Since its foundation, Fr. Joaquim Ganhão has been the general director of the SCCS, David Paccetti Correia, the artistic director and Rosário Correia is currently the musical director

Al Ayre Español

The ensemble was founded in 1988 by Eduardo López Banzo, in an effort to challenge the pervading clichés that often surrounded the performance of Spanish baroque music at that time. The name of the ensemble was inspired by the title of a guitar fugue by the Aragonese composer Gaspar Sanz. The fact that Al Ayre Español has not settled for becoming a specialised early music ensemble, but chosen instead to create a musical philosophy "al ayre español" (à la espagnole), has allowed the project to be flexible enough to adapt itself to different formats.

With 32 years of appearances in the top festivals and theaters in Europe, 16 years as a resident orchestra at the Auditorio de Zaragoza, 20 CD recordings, national and international awards (2004 Premio Nacional de Música of Spain, among others) and distinctions, as well as a relentless schedule of international performances and events for the coming seasons, there is no doubt that the group from Aragon is one of the most prominent ensembles in Spain.

Al Ayre Español has performed at the most prestigious concert halls: Amsterdam's Concertgebouw, Vienna's Musikverein and Konzerthaus, Düsseldorf's Tonhalle, Berlin's Konzerthaus and Philharmonie, the Théatre des Champs Elysées and the Cité de la Musique in Paris, Madrid's Teatro Real and Auditorio Nacional, Barcelona's Palau de la Musica Catalana and Gran Teatre del Liceu, Hamburg's Laeiszhalle, Washington's Library of Congress, the Palais des Beaux Arts in Brussels, Metz's Arsenal, Lisbon's Fundação Calouste Gulbenkian, Bilbao's Palacio Euskalduna, Rome's Teatro Olimpico, Sevilla's Teatro de la Maestranza, Warsaw Philharmonie etc.

They have also been invited to some of the most important festivals: Baden Baden Easter Festival, Bachfestspiele Leipzig, Oude Muziek Utrecht, Internationale Festtage Alter Musik Stuttgart, Schleswig-Holstein Musik Festival, Dresdner Musikfestpiele, Festival d'Ambronay, Handel Festspiele Halle, Oslo Church Music Festival, Praga Spring Festival, Monteverdi Festival (Cremona), Festival en el Camino de Santiago, Festival de Santander, Quincena Musical de San Sebastián, Hong Kong Arts Festival and Yong Siew Toh Hall in Singapur, etc.

Their recordings have been produced by labels such as Almaviva, Fidelio, Deutsche Harmonia Mundi, Harmonia Mundi France, Naïve-Ambroisie and Challenge Records.

Al Ayre Español is sponsored by Industrias Químicas del Ebro and the Ministry of Culture of Spain, and maintains a residence agreement with the Auditorio de Zaragoza. The ensemble has been Zaragoza’s ambassador since 2011.
