    Gabrielli - Canzona Spiritata

    Gionvanni Gabrieli composed this fine work that is probably his hallmark piece. The "Canzona Spiritata" is set for brass quartet using GPO;

    Trumpet 1 Player 1
    Trumpet 2 Player 1
    French Horn 1 Player 1
    Tube Solo 1

    I set the Ambience with just enough fullness to not loose the faster passages but still provide the feeling of space.

    Although I prefer the clarity of a light hand on the reverb,
    you can probably get away with a little more if you pull
    the predelay way down in Ambience... that's often the
    culprit when attacks and articulations lose their clarity.

    Nice job on this, Gary.

    My best,

    Hi David,

    I find that reducing the Decay Diffusion from the default of 50% to 20-30% usually does the trick. The Predelay is only 6msec and that does not seem to affect it as much as the Diffusion. So at least it seems to me.

    Glad that you enjoyed the music.

    Hi, Gary

    Beautiful piece, beautifully realized by you. Technically, it sounds to me you've done well with your reverb on this.

    Using the Players as opposed to Soloists has been a topic of ours for a few threads now. Your feeling that the Players blend better in ensembles is well taken, I can see how you can say that.

    The Trumpets in GPO - these Players are So much less successful when heard this isolated, as compared to the Solos, I feel this is a case where your usual rule could be bent. With some finessing, I think you could get the Solo Trumpets to blend the way you need in this, and the result would probably be more realistic.

    Very very nice though, I admire you putting this piece together.

    There are few more glorious experiences in life than to be part of a large brass ensemble playing Gabrielli in a good hall or church. Five hundred years later and it still moves you. Timeless music. Thanks for this rendition.

    Gary, a very nice interpretation. I admit that I never heard the original on this, but it sounds just great to me. The brass blends well.

    Nice to see Brass getting a little attention. The only problem I have with the piece (and I too wrestle with this) is the harshness of the trumpets at the beginning. Not really sure how to mellow it out or if you even want to. Just my opinion, of course.

    Beautiful Brass, Gary! I was also not familiar with Gabrielli, so glad you posted this.
