Any recording that focuses solely upon the music of Andrea Gabrieli, the other Gabrieli, risks languishing in store bins, forgotten by all but the most musicological of listeners. This recording, fortunately, should not suffer that fate.
Director Timothy Roberts, His Majestys Sagbutts and Cornetts and the newly formed His Majestys Consort of Voices have put together a celebration of Andrea Gabrieli that is as well performed as it is researched. Though some of the scoring choices are unusual, the performances are nearly impeccable with but a few exceptions.
