Notes and Editorial Reviews

Paul McCreesh and the Gabrieli Consort and Players have become famous for their recreations of the great liturgical set pieces of the Venetian 16th and early 17th centuries. These recordings made in the 1990s are state of the art and were critically acclaimed. In this 5Cd set we are taken back to St Mark’s Basilica, the most important church in the city-state, and the Confraternity of San Rocco, for which Giovanni Gabrieli and his colleague the falsetto Bartolemeo Barbarino composed remarkable collection of instrumental and vocal music. This recording includes wide range of Gabrieli’s work, from intimate motets, to the reconstructed glory of the 33 part Magnificat On CDs 1 and 2 we are in St Mark’s at Easter time in 1600. The smell of Read more incense hangs in the chill air of the basilica and the huge building resonates with sound of voices – the service has begun. The central work is the Missa Congratulamini mihi by Lassus. As was customary, the Credo has been omitted, and substituted with non-liturgical vocal works by composers such as Giovanni and Alessandro Gabrieli, Bendinelli, and Merulo. Organ toccatas, Sacrae symphonea and other vocal works are placed between the movements of the Mass. The Venetian Vespers on CDs 3 and 4 again draws on music from a variety of composers as services such as the vespers at this time were often made up of movements of Mass and Vespers settings by different composers. The composer of the most famous setting of the Vespers, Claudio Monteverdi features here with his Messa et salmi, alongside Banchieri, Cavalli, and Giovanni Gabrieli.

-----------------------------

This is the second disc to come from Paul McCreesh and his Gabrieli forces and it is already their second Gramophone Award. When I reviewed their Virgin Classics' recording of a reconstruction of a dogal coronation of 1595 (5/90) I admired their stylish blend of informed scholarship and sensitive musicianship allied to performances from musicians well-versed in the language of the period. Added to that the music was recorded with great immediacy in the acoustically impressive surroundings of Brinkburn Priory in Northumberland. For this reconstruction of a Vespers that could have be held in St Mark's, Venice McCreesh shows a real understanding of the placing and choreography of the participants in the musical aspects of the liturgy. He has also been quite rigorous with the historical evidence in rejecting the large ensembles still preferred by some interpreters of the Monteverdi Vespers of 1610 in favour of the more intimate groupings that we can be sure Monteverdi knew. The effect overall is a genuine sense of continuity and cohesion between the different works and forces employed rather than a disjointed series of unrelated pieces. And there is some glorious music here, beautifully performed. It would be invidious to single out particular singers; suffice it to say that there are some fine contributions of great delicacy and subtlety. There are some carefully thought-out and gracefullyshaped instrumental playing, and all the performers apply embellishments and passaggi with great naturalness and conviction. In short, this is an heroic achievement of the highest possible order.

-------------------------------



The words ‘Venice’ and ‘splendour’ were simply made to go together and are certainly brought together in the latest recording by the Gabrieli Consort and Players entitled “Music for San Rocco”. The CD is dedicated to an exploration of the vocal and instrumental music of Giovanni Gabrieli, who composed many works for the Confraternity of San Rocco, with just a couple of contributions from the otherwise unknown Bartolomeo Barbarino. He was a virtuoso falsettist who is thought to have performed at the sumptuous feast of music held in honour of St Roch in 1608 of which a remarkably full eye-witness account survives among Coryats Crudities (1611).

Indeed, Paul McCreesh and his team of advisers have taken Thomas Coryat’s description of the 1608 festivities as the starting-point for this concert programme (the music described by Coryat may have formed part of a Vespers service – it’s not clear) which was performed – and videoed – in the magnificent Scuola Grande di San Rocco, famous for its sequence of paintings by Tintoretto. The visual sumptuousness of the interior of the Scuola is well captured on the video, although it suffers from the perennial problem of filmed concerts: a too-rapid sequence of camera shots. I’d much rather the camera lingered longer on the paintings without jumping every few seconds from a soloist’s profile to a sackbut player’s embouchure to a theorbist’s fingers. Nevertheless, the close-ups of the Tintorettos (identified in the booklet provided with the video) to the accompaniment of Gabrieli’s music are certainly an aesthetic feast which surely helps to recapture something of Coryat’s experience. (On the video, art historian Edwin Mullins eloquently adds his thoughts on Tintoretto, and Paul McCreesh justifies, against a lot of background tourist-type noises, the choice of music for his reconstruction of the event.) You will, I suspect, want to listen to the music on your CD player to get the best sound quality (even with a stereo television the results were disappointingly boxy), although it takes skilful manipulation of the remote control to synchronize the video and CD players.

The programme explores a wide range of works by Gabrieli, from the more intimate motets with organ accompaniment right through the spectrum to the extraordinary 33-part Magnificat reconstructed for the occasion by Hugh Keyte. The sheer magnificence of the sound of massed cornetts and sackbuts, blending so harmoniously with the voices, clearly struck Coryat, and is equally irresistible the best part of four centuries later. This is where the Gabrieli Consort and Players came in some years ago when one could only wonder at McCreesh’s logistical abilities in bringing together the required number of chamber organs and so on (“A Venetian Coronation, 1595”, Virgin Classics, 5/90).

The group have, of course, gone from strength to strength, and have explored a wide range of repertory, but they clearly retain a strong affinity with Gabrieli’s music. The singing and playing are quite superb, securely and compellingly flamboyant. It’s difficult to single out individuals from such a high-powered and well-integrated team, but I think I must mention David Hurley who sings the remarkable solo motets by Barbarino with great poise. The cornetts and sackbuts really come into their own in the purely instrumental items such as Gabrieli’s Sonata XVIII but their contribution throughout is vital to the success of the recording.

It is hard to imagine this fine recording of Gabrieli’s music being superseded for some time to come; the video is a luxurious, and very welcome, bonus. For the sheer splendour of the music, and the excellence of the performances, this recording is a must, a real five-star achievement.

-----------------------------

This latest recording from the Gabrieli Consort and Players follows the now familiar format in their recordings of a ‘liturgical’ reconstruction – not an actual celebration of Mass, of course, but a selection of musical items presented in a sequence such as might have pertained to a specific feast in a particular location. This time we are whisked back to St Mark’s, Venice, for an Easter Mass as it might have been celebrated around 1600. Familiar territory for the Gabrieli Consort and Players, of course, although for this recording the centrepiece is not a work by a Venetian composer, but rather the Missa Congratulamini mihi by Orlande de Lassus, whose music was included in the international repertory copied – and presumably performed – at St Mark’s. The accompanying notes do not make it clear whether this particular Mass was among the works copied there, or housed in the basilica’s library, but in any case it seems a good and justifiable idea to reflect in such a reconstruction the broader range of that institution’s music-making.

It’s also good to have another Mass setting by Lassus on disc, even though here the Credo is omitted in accordance with what we know about substitution of sung parts of the liturgy with other, non-liturgical musical items. It’s a six-voice setting that draws on a variety of techniques to create textural variety, using homophony to highlight certain key phrases in the text. Indeed, these are the only passages of the text where the words can be distinctly heard, not so much because of the contrapuntal complexity of the rest of the writing – it’s actually fairly straightforward in this sense – but because of the highly resonant acoustic of Ely Cathedral, which has at least a seven-second reverberation. (Some pieces were apparently recorded in the smaller, but still richly reverberant Lady chapel at Ely.) Perhaps this was a conscious decision to emulate the acoustic of St Mark’s, but it certainly has an important knock-on effect in that in places the performances seem heavily influenced by – if not dependent on – attaining an overall wash of sound in which many rhythmic and compositional details are lost. The impact is tremendous in some items – the larger-scale polychoral works by Giovanni Gabrieli, for example – but perhaps wears a little thin: even the organ pieces are somewhat lost as the sound bounces around the cathedral’s astonishingly high vaulting. How ‘authentic’ is this? How much did the engineers have to do to realize a satisfactory balance between solo voices and instruments in sackbut-dominated items such as Hic est filius Deus and Dulcis Jesu?

As usual, the singing and playing are of a high order, and fans of these large-scale reconstruction projects – which only DG seem able to afford – will want this latest offering on their shelves.
