In Honor of Saint Mark: Gabrieli Music!

From YouTube user, Karl Barton, comes the video below. Giovanni Gabrieli was organist and composer for Saint Mark’s Basilica in Venice. He was the more famous nephew of Andrea Gabrieli.

Here is his description from YouTube:

This features scenes from Venice near St. Mark’s Basilica with the music of Giovanni Gabrieli “Plaudite, psallite, jubilate Deo” (Clap, sing praises, make a joyful sound to God). St. Mark’s featured the polychoral style with choirs spread throughout the sanctuary that is evident in this music that was created during the late Renaissance and early Baroque eras.
