J.D. Bomtempo
João Domingos Bomtempo (28/12/1775 - 18/08/1842), a Portuguese composer. He was born in Lisbon. His works as a composer are extensive, covering works of the most varied forms of music. The concertos, sonatas, fantasias, and variations which he composed for his instrument of choice, (some with violin accompaniment), combine a brilliant style of composing, much in the style of Clementi, with complete exploration of the music reserves and expressions of the pianoforte. His two surviving symphonies (five others are known to have existed) reveal most about his personality, showing an assimilation, very rare amongst Iberian composers of that time, of the Germanic music of the classical period of Haydn and Mozart.

This requiem (opus 23) is called: Requiem to the memory of Camões. The requiem was premiered in 1819 at a private concert in the French capital, and was repeated with great success in London.
There is a serie of coral-symphonic music of considerable importance, and the already mentioned Requiem to the memory of Camões, a mass, two cantatas and various chamber works, such as one for quintet with piano, and a serenade for piano, double bass and wind instruments. His brief incursion into dramatic music includes only some fragments for the opera Alessandro in Efeso.

The requiem opus 23 was composed during a brief stay in Paris in 1819, which explains the French form of the original title: Mees de Requiem consacrée à la mémoire de Camoes. During Portugal's great age of clonial supremacy in the 16th century, Luis Vaz de Camoes (c.1524 - 1578), a first ranking Portuguese poet, had eulogized the deeds of the discoverers and conquerors in his epics and other poems.
