Alberto Nepomuceno (1864-1920) has often been remembered as the “father of Brazilian chamber song”. Likewise, he was credited with having been the first great defender of the Portuguese language in the Brazilian concert music. In the one hundred years of his death, it is opportune to reflect on the veracity or limits of these statements in the light of recent research on the songs produced in Brazil during the long 19th century. It will be possible to conclude that Nepomuceno's songs deserve a prominent place in the history of Brazilian music thanks to their intrinsic qualities and not to an alleged pioneering role in the camera repertoire and in the defense of the vernacular.
