A Venetian Coronation 1595
Gabrieli

 

Formerly known as the Gabrieli Consort & Players, Gabrieli is a pioneering British ensemble whose innovative use of liturgy brings repertoire to life in the context of the ceremony for which it was composed.

For their first Ann Arbor appearance in over a decade, Gabrieli performs its sumptuous reconstruction of a glorious 16th-century Coronation Mass at St. Mark’s in Venice. The mass evokes the grand pageantry of what was truly a magnificent event: the coronation of the Venetian Doge Marino Grimani, whose love of ceremony and state festivals fueled an extraordinary musical bounty during his reign and gave rise to the musical riches of the period.

Their recording of the work won the Gramophone Early Music Award in 2013 and is “a marvelous achievement, incorporating the rapturous choral polyphony of Andrea and Giovanni Gabrieli interspersed with passages of organ and period instrument arrangements of cornets, sackbuts, and shawms. It’s never less than enthralling.” (Independent)

Please note: Audience members are welcome to bring seat cushions. The artists have requested no late seating for this performance.
