Formed in 1963 by the siblings Jane Vicentino do Espírito Santo, Sidney do Espírito Santo, and Roberto do Espírito Santo, each having individually performed in several groups and orchestras until then, Os Três Morais (Morais being their mother's maiden name), influenced by the Swingle Singers, recorded "Sambachiana" (Ely Arcoverde) and gradually incorporated popular music into their previously semi-classical repertory. The trio participated in important bossa nova TV shows like the Bo-64 and O Fino da Bossa (TV Record) and recorded three LPs with that formation until 1970, when Jane married Herondy Bueno, leaving the trio to form with him the duo Jane e Herondy, having been replaced by Vera Lúcia (ex-Alpha Centauri). With the new formation, the group recorded an LP with classics like "As Pastorinhas" (João de Barro/Noel Rosa). In 1997, the trio performed with the original formation in the show Parabéns Música Popular Brasileira at the Baiúca club (São Paulo). While Jane participated in Chico Buarque's Chico Buarque de Hollanda interpreting "Com Açúcar, Com Afeto" (Buarque), later recording the song alone, Sidney, who had been a member of the Garotos Vocalistas (1948), Os Quatro Amigos (1950), and Conjunto Farroupilha (1958) had success with "Além" (with Edson Borges), which was recorded several times by different artists.
