Gabrieli - In Festo
  Sanctissimae Trinitatis
Price: Sek. 82
The music of Andrea (uncle) and Giovanni (nephew) Gabrieli is often described as grand, solemn, magnificent, majestic, splendid. With a minimum of self-consciousness, La Fenice and the Namur Chamber Choir confirm every one of these appropriate adjectives in an hour of brilliant sacred choral music making on this reissue from Ricercar. There is a risk that such extrovert qualities might be all that one hears – or at least that chords-to-impress make the more lasting impression: the sun reflecting from the brass and not the former’s warmth, or the latter’s true colours.
