Following a grand opening tutti for the two equal choirs of five voices, Gabrieli crafts an ingenious work where every aspect of echo effect is explored.
Gabrieli is one of the truly great composers but sadly neglected. His compositions, moreover, are rarely of great technical difficulty, making them ideal for mixed ensembles and school use. We hope this edition will bring these magnificent pieces to a wider audience, especially the young.
Each set contains a score and parts for brass, woodwind and string instruments to allow performances by practically any combination as well as brass only.
