John Frayne

John Frayne's weekly exploration of memorable recordings from the 20th century.

Gabrieli Compositions

 Andrea Gabrieli and his nephew Giovanni were organists and music directors at the Cathedral of St. Mark in the days of Venice's glory, from the late 16th century to the early 17th century. They wrote multi-voiced compositions for the great cathedral in Venice, and over the past decades, performers have tired to record and duplicate the original sounds of their splendid pieces in the same cathedral or other locations.  We will hear some of these records.
