Between songs, we watched the recordings of beautiful poems by Fernando Pessoa, José Régio and Natália Correia masterfully recited by Maria João Luís.

Teresa reveals that “José embala o menino“, one of the most beautiful, in the singer’s opinion, and the only one, with harmonizing by Eurico Carrapatoso, all the other themes have known harmonies by Fernando Lopes Graça, Mário Sampaio Ribeiro, Coroner de Vasconcelos, among others.

Among the themes that Teresa Salgueiro took to São Jorge, Zeca Afonso was also present, with three themes, “Natal dos simples“, “Menino do Bairro negro” and “Mulher da erva“.

Teresa also thanked the dedication and excellence of the work to the musicians who accompanied her, especially José Peixoto, who already accompanied her on so many stages during the Madredeus years.

It was with “Vi o Menino Jesus” by Amália Rodrigues and Carlos Gonçalves that this excellent concert ended, with the audience following, in one of the most beautiful moments of the night, followed by “Noite Feliz“, the only non-Portuguese song.
