    Gabrieli is one of the truly great composers but sadly neglected. His compositions, moreover, are rarely of great technical difficulty, making them ideal for mixed ensembles and school use. We hope this edition will bring these magnificent pieces to a wider audience, especially the young.

    • Each set contains a score and parts for brass, woodwind and string instruments to allow performances by practically any combination as well as brass only.
    • This new Performing Edition of Gabrieli's Sacrae Symphoniae and Canzoni e Sonate was prepared for the recording by the LSO Brass on Naxos Records:
    Vol 1 - 8553609
    Vol 2 - 8553873
    Vol 3 - 8554129

    "...the playing is superb...three CDs which embody all of Gabrieli's instrumental ensemble works, the first such collection in the world".....'Musician'
    "...scrupulously prepared new edition".....'BBC Music Magazine'
    "...notes, both scholarly and exciting series".....'Guardian'
