This work contains the basic elements that guided the preparation of a musicological study, sociological and anthropological history, about the cultural role of Pompeu de Pina´s family. It will focus particularly in the Operas of António José da Silva, “The Jew”, this family keeps in his particular archieve, since the early nineteenth century, not only operas, but a source of scores of centuries past, even without their proper cataloging and study, in the city of Pirenópolis, Goiás, which was far from all major industrial and cultural centers of Brazil. How was road crossing for mining to get to Mato Grosso, the city gained important cultural characteristics since the eighteenth century, and remain until the present day.

We do here parallels between the speeches of sociocultural power, and propose a look at the processes of reception and dissemination of musical manuscripts which arrived in Brazil, mainly in Rio de Janeiro and Salvador da Bahia since the eighteenth century, until they came in Pirenópolis, and how the transformative process with presentations of operas moved this whole city.

The Family Pina, besides having an importante range of the Brazilian musicology documentation, retains for her his whole figure of power, but on the other hand, develops, or “returns” to the community, the musical tastes of the Operas of “The Jew”, like as the most ancient popular traditions: Cavalhadas, Pastorinhas and the Divine´s Party. At the same time that the Family Pina retains the documentation, they diffuses the importance of the archieve, and in a sense, the charisma that Dr. Pompeu discloses the musical performances of the songs to the church, like the music for theater, makes Dr. Pompeu de Pina a singular figure for the preservation and dissemination of this repertoire.

The ideas of Musicking (SMALL: 1998) developed here for the pirenopolina society with regard to the role of the family and their way of reception and dissemination to the community, and dispersion (BROWN & LEMOLINO: 2006), for the part geographic spread, make up the script of this work.
