Abstract:Jose Mauricio Nunes Garcia (1767--1830) is regarded as one of the most important composers of the Americas during his time. In spite of the fact that his name frequently appears in the literature, there are few studies that describe and elucidate his style. The present study focuses on the unique structural elements used by the composer in his three surviving Requiem Masses, demonstrating some of the composer's sophisticated architectural designs. The question of authorship of the Requiem Mass in F Major (CT 190) formerly attributed to Jose Mauricio Nunes Garcia, but found to be by another Brazilian composer, Damiao Barbosa de Araujo (1778--1856), is also discussed. The present study brings to print for the first time an edition of Garcia's 1799 Requiem Mass (CT 182).
