Da quei begl'occhi (SSATB)
One of several madrigals that Giovanni Gabrieli appended to his uncle Andrea's posthumous Terzo libro di madrigali a 5 (1589)
Dimmi ben mio (SSATB)
One of several madrigals that Giovanni Gabrieli appended to his uncle Andrea's posthumous Terzo libro di madrigali a 5 (1589)
Donna leggiadra e bella (SMATB)
A graceful and lively madrigal (like the woman who is the subject of the text), from the anthology De’ floridi virtuosi d’Italia ... libro primo (1583)
O ricco mio tesoro (SS A/T TB)
Another madrigal anthologized in De' floridi virtuosi d'Italia
Lieto godea sedendo (SATB SATB)
Probably Giovanni’s best-known madrigal. This sonorous behemoth bears the indication “Per cantar e sonar” in the original, and affords a splendid bash with massed voices and instruments, although the musical effect is oddly at variance with the melancholy theme of the text.
Vagh' amorosi e fortunati allori (SSATB)
A charming bit of pastoral fluff. The composer seems to have availed himself of every possible opportunity to ornament the text.
Queste felici erbette (SATTB)
An interesting “serious” madrigal, on a somewhat convoluted text in which the protagonist complains that his lady-love metes out kinder treatment to her garden than to him. The downward leap of a seventh in the Quinto, measure 7, is unusual but evidently intentional.
Dolce nemica mia (SAT ATTB)
An "amorous dialog" for two choirs, which Giovanni included in the epoch-making Concerti (1587), devoted mainly to his uncle Andrea's music.
