In the month of celebration of Saint Cecilia's day (22nd November), patron saint of musicians, we make a reference to Irmandade Lisboeta with the same name, since its foundation in 1603 and existence until 1834. The Irmandade regulated the music activity in Lisbon, concentrating in its ranks, along the 19th century, many musicians from brass and military bands, particularly performers of wind instruments such as the tuba.
