The so-called "Évora School," was founded at Évora Cathedral by Manuel Mendes. Some students: Estêvão Lopes Morago, Manuel Cardoso, Filipe de Magalhães, Estêvão de Brito, João Laurenço Rebelo, etc.
There was an important school of polyphonic music in Portugal in those times (Évora and Lisbon); unfortunately, many unpublished works disappeared in the earthquake of Lisbon on 1 November 1755.

The Commissa mea pavesco is as a plainchant the Versicle from the Respond Domine, quando veneris from the de Officium Defunctorum Ad Matutinum, Office Matins of the Dead. This motet is composed by Filipe de Magalhães for six voices (SSAATB). The Domine quando veneris is an old Responsorium, Respond which is still published in the old Liber Usualis page 1797 and is sung after Lectio III in the third Nocturn. Filipe de Magalhães uses in this case the text of the Versicle belonging to this Respond.
This text is set by more Iberian composers as a funeral motet. We mention Estevão López Morago (c.1575-c.1630) and Duarte Lobo (c.1565 -1646).
Filipe de Magalhães has written this Versicle motet out of the Office of the Dead, Commissa mea in a modest very moving polyphonic imitative style in using accidentals, flats and sharps.
Altus 1 starts followed by Superius 1, Superius 2, Altus 2, Tenor and Basus.
The wording “pavesco” is in all parts accentuated – word-painting – with ascending and descending eighth notes. From bar 39 the text “Noli me condemnare” is set up in each part with a little second with a broad imitative style ending up in A-major. This motet in total consists out of 61 bars. In general this motet has to be considered as a masterpiece by Filipe de Magalhães. This motet Commissa mea pavesco by Magalhaes first appeared in Missarum liber dedicated to Phillip II of Portugal, Lisbon 1631.

Commissa mea pavesco, et ante te erubesco. Dum veneris judicare, noli me condemnare.

I dread my judgement and I am ashamed before Thee. When Thou shall come to judgement do not condemn me.
