A rare chance to hear some of the grand ceremonial motets and instrumental pieces for divided choirs written by Giovanni Gabrieli for St Mark’s and other Venetian institutions. They use up to four choirs with voices combined with cornett, sackbuts, dulcians, recorders, Renaissance flute, violin consort, theorboes and organs. Heinrich Schütz’s great four-choir setting of ‘Jauchzet dem Herrn’ is the crowning work of his Psalmen Davids, published 400 years ago. Richly scored works by Michael Praetorius and the Halle organist Samuel Scheidt celebrate the creative application of the Gabrieli style to the Lutheran chorale.
