Trained as a singer in the Portuguese royal chapel, António Carreira became master of the same establishment. He won a reputation as a keyboard composer and performer, parallel to the achievement in Spain of his slightly older contemporary Cabezón.
Like Cabezón, Carreira contributed to the repertoire of tientos and fantasías.
