  Andrea Gabrieli - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Gabrieli was a prolific and versatile composer, and wrote a large amount of music, including sacred and secular vocal music, music for mixed groups of voices and instruments, and purely instrumental music, much of it for the huge, resonant space of St. Mark's.
Once Gabrieli was working at St. Mark's, he began to turn away from the Franco-Flemish contrapuntal style which had dominated the music of the 16th century, instead exploiting the sonorous grandeur of mixed instrumental and vocal groups playing antiphonally in the great cathedral.
Evidently Andrea Gabrieli was reluctant to publish a lot of his own music, and his nephew Giovanni Gabrieli published a good deal his music after his death.

 Gabrieli, Giovanni (c. 1558 - 1613)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-08)
Nephew of Andrea Gabrieli, organist at St. Mark's in Venice from 1566 until his death twenty years later, Giovanni Gabrieli was appointed to a permanent position at the same basilica in 1585, where he also served as organist until his death in 1613.
Gabrieli continued the traditional cori spezzati techniques developed at St. Mark's during the century, contrasting different groups of singers and instrumentalists and making use of the spacial effects possible in the great basilica.
The most widely known of Gabrieli's works is the Sonata pian' e forte, an eight-part composition for two four-part groups of wind instruments included in the Sacrae symphoniae of 1597, with a number of instrumental Canzoni for between six and sixteen parts.

 San Francisco Bach Choir: Andrea Gabrieli
Andrea Gabrieli, Italian organist and composer, wrote madrigals, motets, masses, ricercari, and canzones for organ and was important in developing multiple-choir technique, which was further refined by his nephew Giovanni Gabrieli.
Andrea was the first Venetian composer of international stature after a period in which Netherlandish composers had been dominant in the city.
Andrea’s compositions are less flashy and profound than those of his nephew, but Giovanni could not have written what he did without standing on his uncle’s musical shoulders.

 Sleeve Notes - Andrea Gabrieli: Missa Pater Peccavi   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-08)
At a time when Italian music was dominated by Flemish composers, Andrea Gabrieli was a native Venetian, born around 1510, probably in Cannareggio in a northern part of 'the floating city', where he became organist of the Church of San Geremia.
Gabrieli does not in fact reduce the number of parts for the 'Christe' or 'Pleni sunt coeli', but he does use smaller contrasted groupings of three or four voices for certain phrases, sowing the seeds, as it were, for the tonal contrasts and conversational responses that would later lead to the Venetian polychoral style.
Though Andrea Gabrieli's works for instrumental ensemble are few in number and modest in scale, they are as masterly as his vocal music and have much in common with the more familiar language of Giovanni's canzonas and sonatas.

 GIOVANNI GABRIELI
He was one of the first "orchestrators" of instrumental music and would specify instruments and playing volumes to create specific sonic effects.” He incorporated brass and other various instruments into his choral works, which in some cases amounted to unprecedented and outrageous forces for the time period.
Gabrieli was employed here for a number of years and eventually went on to win the organist position at St. Mark’s Church where he would remain for the duration of his life.
The position of choirmaster was the most coveted position in all Italy.” Gabrieli was one of these choirmasters as well as a key musical figure in the era known as the Counter-Reformation, a movement concentrated in the Roman Catholic Church as a reaction to the revolution incited by Martin Luther and his followers.

 Andrea Gabrieli: Missa Pater Peccavi
The uncle of the great Giovanni Gabrieli, Andrea Gabrieli is often overshadowed by his nephew, yet he was one of the greatest and most approachable composers of the High Renaissance.
Late in his life Andrea composed a Mass for four choirs, but most of his music requires only relatively modest forces; yet it has all the colour, imagination and emotional immediacy that we associate with the best Venetian art of the 16th century.
Andrea seemed reluctant to publish his work, and consequently much of his music cannot be precisely dated (his instrumental music was not printed until after his death).

Among the sacred compositions of Giovanni Gabrieli are a Kyrie, Gloria, Sanctus, and Benedictus, all included in a print of 1597 and presumably belonging to a single Mass.
Motets of his began to appear in the 1587 volume representing him and Andrea jointly.
"Giovanni Gabrieli is the musical Titian of Venice, as Palestrina is the musical Raphael of Rome." With his compositions, however, we have definitely crossed the border into the domain of baroque music.

 Dynamic Records
The figure of Andrea Gabrieli has been reappraised as of the last twenty years of the twentieth century.
Less famous, less studied and less performed than Palestrina and Lasso, Andrea Gabrieli has a smaller production of vocal music than his celebrated sixteenth-century “peers”, but the catalogue of his works is more diversified, with compositions in different genres (vocal sacred and profane, compositions for numbers of instruments, keyboard).
In the Masses Andrea Gabrieli confirms his skill in counterpoint writing, masters the technique of composition and expounds the cantus firmus in the four voices, not limiting himself to the application of a technique but varying it time after time.
