Digital Download

Gabrieli’s Sacrae Symphoniae (1597) No.5 Canzon Duodecimi Toni À 8 is written for 4 Trumpets and 4 Trombones, arranged into two opposing choirs.

Hidden within Gabrieli’s Sacrae Symphoniae of 1597, tucked amid a plethora of forty-five vocal compositions, lie sixteen pieces that constitute one of the earliest monumental achievements in instrumental ensemble music. This assortment comprises fourteen canzoni and two sonatas, distinguished by their unparalleled excellence within their contemporary genre, rarely matched in the subsequent decades, primarily by the hand of Gabrieli himself. Gabrieli’s contributions to the evolution of the canzona and sonata are remarkable: he was the leading composer to venture beyond compositions exceeding eight parts and to employ polychoral techniques. Moreover, his innovation extended to the interplay of polyphonic and homophonic textures, as well as the seamless integration of duple and triple meters within individual works, all while demonstrating a discerning ear for tonal color and specified instrumentation to evoke dramatic effects.
