This is Gabrieli's first published collection of his compositions and shows his early style. 1565 is an interesting date as Gabrieli's star was just rising in Venice - he had travelled to Munich in 1562, befriending Orlandus Lassus, and then he became organist at San Marco in 1566. Quite possibly this collection, dedicated to Prince Albert, Duke of Bavaria and probably at least partially composed while in Munich, helped Gabrieli to gain the post.

As suggested on the 1565 title page, instrumental support or substitution is optional but worth considering. The source is in high clefs, so downward transposition for performance was likely.

Editor: Alistair Kirk (submitted 2015-06-11).   Score information: A4, 4 pages, 105 kB   Copyright: CPDL
Edition notes: Down a fourth for lower voices (as suggested by Gabrieli's use of high clefs). Various voice combinations might work: SSTTB, AATTB, SSTBarB, AATBarB. However, the Lilypond source code is specially designed to be easy to transpose, change clefs, change music font size, change paper size etc, so users are encouraged to experiment. Corrections and constructive criticism welcomed.

Edition notes:Original source is in high clefs, so performance pitch was probably lower. With this score I've chosen to go down a tone for SSATB. However, the Lilypond source code is specially designed to be easy to transpose, change clefs, change music font size, change paper size etc, so users are encouraged to experiment. Corrections and constructive criticism welcomed.
