Oltremontano & Gesualdo Consort Amsterdam

Christmas in Venice

Composer and organist Giovanni Gabrieli, the principal composer at St Marks Basilica in Venice from 1585 onwards, wrote music for impressive multiple choirs for Christmas and the Christmas Eve midnight mass, which was attended by huge numbers of people. More than twenty musicians from the Oltremontano and Gesualdo Consort, led by Wim Becu, perform this monumental music, from the six-part Cantate Domino to the sixteen part Audite principes. Experience a unique and festive Venetian Christmas with this superbly powerful music.
