Do You Hear an Echo?

St Mark's Basilica in Vencie
St Mark's Basilica in Vencie

The interior of St. Mark's in Venice is so vast it causes long delays between phrases of music as it's performed.  To fill in that space, Giovanni Gabrieli developed a special echo technique.  You can hear it in action tonight when we enjoy his Canzona on the 12th Tone.
