A Venetian Coronation 1595 is a musical re-creation of the Coronation Mass for the Venetian Doge Marino Grimani, evoking the grand pageantry of what would have been a truly magnificent event. Grimani’s love of ceremony and state festivals fuelled an extraordinary musical bounty during his reign and gave rise to the great musical riches of the period, especially the works of Giovanni Gabrieli. With cornetts, sackbuts and an all-male vocal consort, Paul McCreesh fully exploits the dazzling polyphony of Andrea and Giovanni Gabrieli’s music, captivating the audience in a performance that is at once theatrical and ceremonial.
