"Grao de Trigo"

Here is a realization of the Portuguese song "Grao de Trigo".  I wrote this realization for a wedding that I music directed in 2011 and used it again for another wedding ceremony in 2014.  I'm making it available for free download here on my website since I had so much trouble finding it else where online.  It is available for download on my Commerce page.  Enjoy! -Paulo

Psalm Settings

I have been setting Psalms for some years now.  I find a fascinating challenge with composing Psalm settings and enjoy bringing life to the text of Psalms through my music compositions.  Any and all are welcome to use these settings in regular mass and wedding masses and request that if you use any of my settings, please give me credit for the music setting with the notation: "Music by Paulo Almeida".  All my Psalm settings are available for a small purchase and download on my Commerce page.  If you would like to request any of these settings in a different key, please contact me through email or phone and I'll do my best to make any accommodations I can.  By the way, I'm not so good at answering my phone from unmarked numbers so if you get my voicemail, please send me a text message so I know to get back to you with any questions. -Paulo
