Giovanni Gabrieli was organist for both Saint Mark's and the Scuola Grande di San Rocco. Donald Macleod turns his attention to the music Gabrieli wrote for the Scuola Grande.

As well as holding the post of organist at Saint Mark's in Venice, Giovanni Gabrieli also had another 'income stream' as organist for the nearby Scuola Grande di San Rocco. Donald Macleod looks at some of the composer's magnificent works for this extraordinary institution.
