Program Notes

Giovanni Gabrieli’s music has been regarded as some of the most representative and influential music of the Renaissance, with much of it still performed regularly. Gabrieli, who served as organist at the Basilica San Marco in Venice, Italy, from 1584 until his death in 1612, wrote for voices, instrumental ensembles, and organ. The Basilica, itself an architectural wonder, contains a main floor flanked by a balcony high above on either side. Gabrieli would often take advantage of this space by placing instrumental choirs in both balconies, performing his music antiphonally.

Canzon duodecimi toni, from his Sacrae Symphoniae, uses two brass choirs which took full advantage of the space within the Basilica San Marco. Contrasting moments of majesty and introspection alternate within this work, creating a conversation between choirs and providing a unique and fascinating aural experience for the listener.
