Manuscript of prose from a little play with words by Coelho Neto (b. Brazil 1964, d. 1934) and music by Joaquim Torres Delgado de Carvalho (b. Brazil 1872, d. 1921). Coelho was a noted romanticist, novelist and poet in late 19th and early 20th century Brazil. Delgado de Carvalho was a leading composer in turn of the century Brazil who is noted for producing some of the first "Brazilian" musical compositions. The manuscript is in a neat script; could be original but probably a copy contemporaneous with the production. The Biblioteca Nacional in Rio de Janeiro has 1 copy of Hostia in its inventory.
