Description: These multiple award-winning releases, recorded, respectively, in Brinkburn Priory, Northumberland; Ely Cathedral and Ely Lady Chapel and Scuola Grande di San Rocco in Venice, recreated two of the extravagant sacred musical spectactulars the city of canals was known for and are remarkable also for their wide-ranging sound, with the spatial separation of the performers managed as well as could be done without surround sound. Now ridiculously inexpensive, they make a great pick-up for anyone even mildly interested in the period. 5 CDs. Gabrieli Consort, Choir and Players; Paul McCreesh. Original 1990, 1995 and 1996 DG releases.
