MANUEL DA FONSECA  

(d 1585 )

Manuel de Fonseca was director of music at the Cathedral of Braga and had been for a time in the service of the son of the King of Portugal. Little is known of his life.

Church Music

Music by Fonseca is represented chiefly by his Liber Introitus (‘Book of Introits’), surviving in Braga. His Beata viscera seems to be an introit for the obsolete Braga rite.
