1615 Gabrieli in Venice - King's College Choir

$ 22.87 $ 25.99


“The choral sound is candid and transparent, the lower, adult voices sensitively balanced so as not to swamp the delicate timbre of the boy choristers. His Majestys Sagbutts and Cornetts offer flawless, vocally-inspired ensemble playing, their plangent wind instruments gleaming and glimmering like the gold mosaics in San Marco”

Much of Giovanni Gabrieli's music was composed for grand ceremonial occasions and 2015 marks not just the 400th annviersary of the publication of this collection of works from 1615, but also the 500th anniversary of the completion of King's College Chapel. The Choir celebrates these anniversaries with the first classical album ever to use Dolby's new Atmos technology, which uses ceiling-mounted speakers tp reproduce the acoustics of the Chapel with unprecedented realism. Paying homage to one of the most influential musicians of the Venetian Renaissance, Gabrieli was a prolific composer of sacred vocal and instrumental music. The Choir is joined by His Majestys Sagbutts & Cornetts playing faithful recreations o instruments from Gabrieli's time. This recording is also available in SACD and Pure Audio Blu-ray formats"
