This recording contains the entire Canzoni et Sonate da sonar as issued posthumously in 1615, one of the few Venetian publications devoted entirely to Giovanni Gabrieli. This is easily the high point of Gabrieli's canzona writing, along with the Sonate con tre violini, a signifier of upcoming developments. Here we have a rather infrequent interpretation of most of the items on recorders (as opposed to cornets & sackbuts).
