Araujo Pedro

  • Organiste et compositeur portugais
  • 1662
  • 1705
  • Baroque

Portuguese organist and composer. He was a leading figure among secular and monastic organists in the archdiocese of Braga during the last quarter of the 18th century. He taught music at St Peter's Seminary in Braga (1662-8) and in 1665 gave up the post of second organist at Braga Cathedral when he was granted a benefice at St Salvador in nearby Joane (now Famalicão), where he was active until at least 1704. He is known to have composed 13 keyboard works and another six can be attributed to him on stylistic grounds [...]. They bring together Aragonese and Italian, as well as Portuguese, elements, and demonstrate Araújo's sensitivity to the character of the Portuguese-Galician organ of his time.
