Program Notes

Giovanni Gabrieli began his composition career with the popular vocal madrigals of that time, but eventually began favoring sacred music for vocal and instrumental forces. The unique design of St. Mark's Basilica, with its two opposing choir lofts, led him to his characteristic antiphonal style: one group would begin from the left-sided loft, followed by a response from the group on the right. Even to this day the acoustics of the cathedral are such that the music is in perfect balance to the listener throughout the church.

The most complete compilation of Gabrieli's choral and instrumental works is the Sacrae Symphoniae of 1597. From this collection, Jubilate Deo ("Sing Out to the Lord") was written for eight vocal parts: two soprano (most probably boys) and to contra-alto voices, two tenor and two bass voices. Payment records from the church indicate that, like most of Gabrieli's music at the time, it may have been performed with wind instrument such as cornetti and sackbuts doubling the voices.
