The Gabrieli Consort and Players return to the programme that put them on the musical map when it was originally recorded and released in 1990: A Venetian Coronation 1595 is a musical re-creation evoking the grand pageantry of the Coronation Mass for Venetian Doge Marino Grimani. His love of ceremony and state festivals fuelled an extraordinary musical bounty during his reign and formed the background to the musical riches of the period, especially to the works of Giovanni Gabrieli. With cornetts, sackbuts and an all-male consort, Paul McCreesh fully exploits the dazzling polyphony of Andrea and Giovanni Gabrieli’s music and captivates the audience in a theatrical and ceremonious performance.
Two decades later, the Gabrieli’s New Venetian Coronation takes advantage of huge developments in early instruments, performance techniques and research into the pieces that were on the original (as well as advances in recording techniques).

 "... The blend of voices and brass is generally well balanced, with a uniformly high tonal quality, and the quality of the brass playing is also extremely high... The listener will be quickly drawn into the world of Venetian festival, blending politcal and religious ideology in an opulent whole."

John Collins - The Consort (The Journal of the Dolmetsch Foundation) - Summer 2013


"... Strongly recommended."
 
Berry Brenesal - Fanfare - January/February 2013

                       **** - Excellent 

Marco Bizzarini - Musica magazine - March 2013


"...Buy this disc and you’ll experience Renaissance Venice in the aural equivalent of “glorious technicolour”.
 
John Quinn - MusicWeb-International.com - 10 September 2012


"...A New Venetian Coronation 1595’ represents an excellent hour and ten minutes’ worth of delightful music played with great style. It’s also sufficiently distinct from the earlier CD to be worth buying in its own right...It’s hard to imagine anyone remaining unmoved or not uplifted by this music.
 
Mark Sealey - MusicWeb-International.com - 9 August 2012
 

 


"...this is a fascinating and musically captivating aural journey to a city whose splendour was impressively illustrated by the splendour of its music."
 
Johan van Veen - MusicWeb-International.com - 31 July 2012


                     Performance *****         Recording *****

"...this is a marvelously handled recording conjuring up a ’live’ event that is greatly aided by the opening bell-ringing and the ethereal spacious surround of the chanting ..."

Anthony Pryer - BBC Music magazine - September 2012


         IRR Outstanding
"...This is a hugely charismtic and colourful coronation, and is one for those recording’s it’s hard to stop inching up the volume control. McCreesh’s new take on his classic recording is a triumph and even more vivid than the first. Although recorded at Douai Abbey in Berkshire, it sounds more exotic, as if the musicians really are arrayed around the galleries and podiums of St Mark’s. highly recommended to both first - nd second time buyers, and on track to inspire yet another generation."

Simon Heighes - International Record Review - July/August 2012
 


"The latest of Paul McCreesh’s large-scale musical projects, following his award-winning realisation of Berlioz’s colossal Grande Messe des Morts, is this updated re-recording of the album that in 1990 established the reputation of the Gabrieli Consort & Players, a detailed re-creation of the pageantry surrounding the coronation of Marino Grimani as Doge of Venice in 1595. It’s a marvellous achievement, incorporating the rapturous choral polyphony of Andrea and Giovanni Gabrieli interspersed with passages of organ and period-instrument arrangements of cornetts, sackbutts and shawms. It’s never less than enthralling, especially the lengthy opening "The Procession"."

The Independent


"The opening track of prefatory bells and trumpets has been much elaborated, with greater ambient sound and what appear to be celebratory fireworks. Following this clamorous showmanship, the’CD settles down respectfully to the necessary liturgy with a beautiful Mass setting and Communion motet by Giovanni Gabrieli’s more sober uncle Andrea, duly surrounded by plainchant prayers, canzonas, and organ interludes.Overall, the music proceeds with more solemnity than excitement, shrouded in a religiously reverberant acoustic that blurs most words except "Alleluia" …  McCreesh’s Coronation, past the first track, gives the brain more food for thought."

Geoff Brown - The Times


"In 1989, McCreesh set a trend for re-creations on disc of historic ceremonial occasions with music.The event in question, then and now, was the coronation of Doge Marino Grimani, whose reign coincided with the careers ofAndrea and Giovanni Gabrieli in the service of St Mark’s Basilica. Their vocal and instrumental music remains the core of the programme - although Giovanni’s most famous piece, the Sonata pian’ e forte, has been dropped infavouroflessfamiliarworks- but some of the supporting cast is new, such as Hans Leo Hassler’s "processional". Even i f you own the classic Virgin disc, this new version is a must-buy. "
