Product Notes

Gabrieli is one of the most important representatives of Venetian polyphony. His Sacrae Symphoniae, printed in 1597, is a monumental collection reflecting the power and esteem of the Venetian state. On this recording, Wim Becu and Oltremontano have selected works that form a cross-section of Gabrieli's vocal and instrumental oeuvre. The ensemble is joined by the Gesualdo Consort Amsterdam for the vocal concertos, in which we find not only Psalm motets bound to the earlier, lofty Renaissance style, but also hymn-like settings of Marian prayer texts. In addition, there are also purely instrumental works - a novelty for this period. The predilection of the period for the effects of spatial antiphony is reflected in all the works.
