Program Notes

Giovanni Gabrieli was one of the most prolific composers of the late- 16th/early-17th century. Famously known for his long tenure at St. Mark’s Cathedral in Venice, he is remembered as an accomplished organist, teacher and composer.

Canzon Primi Toni, which comes from Gabrieli’s 1597 collection Sacrae Symphoniae, makes stunning use of cori spezzati (separated choirs) through its imitative writing for the two antiphonal brass choirs which would have been positioned in opposing choir lofts in the Basilica.
