Experience the elaborate and sacred sound world of early Baroque Italian masters as summoned by the cornetts, sackbuts, Renaissance strings, organ, natural trumpets, drums, and male voices of Gabrieli. Reconstructing a ceremonial Mass from Venice’s iconic St. Mark’s Basilica, this timeless group of musicians evokes the grand pageantry of a 16th-century coronation, offering a glorious concert experience full of regal pomp and circumstance.
“An experience you just never want to come to an end.”
“Artistry that completely avoids the impression of artifice: you simply feel you’re listening directly to what the composer meant by the music.””
—BBC Music Magazine
