Ricercar del duodecimo tuono

Andrea Gabrieli (c1510-1586)

Ricercar del duodecimo tuono

In 1589, Giovanni Gabrieli was responsible for editing a collection of Madrigali e Ricercari a quattro by his uncle, which included the Ricercar del duodecimo tuono. Like Adrian Willaert before him, Andrea Gabrieli  was very interested in compositions which, by dividing the singers between its various galleries, exploited the potential for antiphony in the Basilica of St Mark. There were, however, very few singers on the Basilica's payroll, and the vocal parts were, therefore, often doubled by instrumentalists to obtain the truly grand sonority Andrea and his nephew helped develop.
