Format: Audio CD
Few early music enthusiasts - or indeed classical fans in general - will fail to twig that this is a remake of the Gabrieli Consort's brilliantly successful "A Venetian Coronation" of 1990. Just in case it needs to be said, that recording was a conjectural reconstruction, or re-creation, of the music performed in the Basilica of St. Mark's, Venice, to celebrate the coronation of Doge Marino Grimani in April 1595. The music is based around a polychoral mass by Andrea Gabrieli, with additional motets by Andrea and his nephew Giovanni and several instrumental items. Most of the vocal pieces chosen for this new recording are as on the earlier disc, but there are some changes in the instrumental works.

The approach, however, is somewhat different. This is immediately evident in the opening track of the disc, recreating the sound of the procession in the Piazza San Marco, with bells and a constant hum of voices from the crowd; and in these magical few moments we are irresistibly transported back in time to late renaissance Venice. Instruments - first shawms, then trumpets and drums - are heard above the general hubbub of sound, and other signs of celebration too; and then we proceed into the Basilica for the Mass and its accompanying chants, organ intonations and canzoni. Andrea Gabrieli's multi-choir mass movements consist of Kyrie, Gloria and Sanctus-Benedictus, beginning with 5 voices and varying up to the 16 voices in 4 choirs of the Gloria. It is all magnificent music - beautifully sung here, and very differently from the earlier recording. The all-male solo singers sound marvellous with their clear, ringing tones, and the integration of grandeur with intimacy is beautifully managed by both performers and sound engineers.

This new version of the work that made the Gabrieli and Paul McCreesh so famous is different from that pioneering version in a number of ways. The opening really invokes the carnival atmosphere of the election of a popular Doge complete with the ringing of bells and crackle of fireworks. The smaller forces make for a clearer and more intimate feel appropriate to an area which was a relatively compact and compartmentalised private chapel. The virtuosity is as we would expect of this renowned group and at times the playing is just spine-tingling in its virtuosity. Yet there is also a spaciousness that enhances the solemnity of the occasion. As the Times said after an earlier live performance: "May the Gabrieli live forever in glory!"

The music is wonderful and the recording is superb. I felt as if I were actually there in Venice at the Doge's coronation. The instrumentalists are excellent and the singing is outstanding - beautiful, sensitive, balanced.

This is one of the most exciting sounds I have heard for a long time, and so beautifully packaged I'm recommending to everyone and not just the usual early-music enthusiasts. A friend who bought it at my suggestion said the only thing missing was the smell of incense - so perhaps a scratch'n'sniff cover is something to consider for the future. Joking apart, it's my CD of the year.

The original 1990 HIP recording was groundbreaking. This takes the aesthetic and praxis to extremes but does so in a way that results in a likeable, engaging and intelligent performance. I'm fonder of the original having grown up with it but this is a worthy addition to any collection.
