Renaissance Era CD Bundle

Canadian Brass has developed a core repertoire for brass quintets based upon classical masterpieces.  The recordings in this package represent some of our best classical music recordings. 

ECHO; GLORY OF GABRIELI - This recording displays the Brass's more serious side with an album exploring the Baroque innovations pioneered by Gabrieli at Venice's Basilica San Marco. Because of the Basilica's unique design, which included two choir lofts separated by a cavernous interior, it was difficult for choirs to sing in unison. Gabrieli used this to his advantage in his music for brass, creating works where one brass choir echoes or responds to the other -- a technique that proved immensely popular in his time and is recreated in our own by Canadian Brass. Contents include: Samuel Scheidt 1. Echo / Giovanni Gabrieli 2. Canzon septimi toni 3. Sonata pian e forte / Claudio Monteverdi SUITE FROM L'ORFEO 4. Toccata 5. Prologo-Dal mio Permesso amato 6. Lasciate i monti 7. Vieni Imeneo 8. Ecco Orfeo 9. Messaggiera y Pastore 10. Tu se' morta 11. Ahi caso acerbo! 12. Chi Ne Consola 13. Vanne Orfeo 14. Moresca  / Giovanni Gabrieli 15. Canzon primi toni 16. Canzona da sonar II 17. Canzon in double echo 18. Canzona da sonar IV 19. Canzon septimi e octavi toni.

SACRED BRASSA new approach to Renaissance music. Here the brass ensemble doesn't accompany a choir, but voices and brass merge to provide a completely different sound and feeling. Throughout the recording the tuba has been replaced by a cimbasso (valve contrabass trombone) played by Chuck Daellenbach. Titles: 1. Ascendo ad Patrem (Palestrina) 2. Miserere (Allegri) 3. Io parto e non piu dissi (Gesualdo) 4. Io pur respiro (Gesualdo) 5. Resta di darmi noia (Gesualdo) 6. Moro, lasso (Gesualdo) 7. Exsultate Deo (Palestrina)8.
