Gabrieli was an organist at the San Marco Cathedral in Venice and preceeded Monteverdis tenure there. The following four selections are from a set of three albums that were recorded by Columbia Records in Gabriellis own San Marco Cathedral in Venice in the 1960s and featured The Gregg Smith Singers, the Texas Boys Choir, the Edward Tarr Brass Ensemble, E. Power Biggs and Vittorio Negri, conductor. These recordings were a tremedous revelation of the music of this fine composer as they fully reveal the glory of his music. The albums were called The Glory of Gabrielli, The Glory of Venice, and The Glory of Gabrieli, Volume III. These albums are long out of print, but Sony has re-released some, if not all, of the material from these albums in CD format.
