Giovanni Gabrieli (c1553-1612)
Six instrumental pieces by Gabrieli were published in
1608 in an anthology compiled by the Venetian Alessandro Raverii. These include the
four-part canzona La Spiritata, which had first appeared in 1593 as a keyboard
piece in Dirutas collection called Il Transilvano, and the Canson
Terzadecima by the 25-year old Girolamo Frescobaldi.
