Notes and Editorial Reviews

The Gabrieli Consort and Players return to the program that put them on the musical map when it was originally recorded and released in 1990: a musical re-creation evoking the grand pageantry of the Coronation Mass for Venetian Doge Marino Grimani. His love of ceremony and state festivals fueled an extraordinary musical bounty during his reign and formed the background to the musical riches of the period, especially to the works of Giovanni Gabrieli. Two decades later, the Gabrieli’s A New Venetian Coronation,1595 takes advantage of huge developments in early instruments, performance techniques and research into the pieces that were on the original (as well as advances in recording techniques).
