GiovanniGabrieli was no mere composer. He was an event. The figure at the nexus of manythings all coming together in one grand tide. The greatest church in thegreatest city of Europe. Freedom of intellectual thought. A Venetian School ofcomposers at the forefront of musical innovation. The printing press andmusical publishing. A Doge (Chief Magistrate or Duke) willing to spend, andspend big, on musical pomp and ceremony. A dearth of wealth and money to fundthe grandest celebrations. He was the leading Italian composer and organist inVenice at its greatest heights at the chasm between the end of the Renaissanceand the beginning of the Baroque period in music.  

Presented here is oneof Gabrieli’s more larger works in the form of a Sonata. A variety ofsubstitute parts are also included to handle trombone parts with Bb trumpetsand F Horns. One of Gabrieli’s most beautiful works, the harmonies and tonalityof this piece are startling with how modern this piece sounds. A great workthat displays some of his most glorious sounding melodies.
