The Canzoni et sonate per sonar con ogni sorte de instrumenti date back to 1615: thus three years after his death, Gabrieli is commemorated by one of the very rare publications entirely dedicated to him. There are 17 canzonas (one for 5 voices, three for 6 and 7, six for 8, two for 10 and 12) and 4 sonatas (for 14, 15, and 22 voices, and the last for three violins).

It is surprising that the other eight-voice canzona of the preceding collection is not reprinted here, considering that the two pieces are the underlying idiomatic basis of this new anthology. There is an intimate relationship between these works and the motets of the same year - all of them, in their magnificence, celebrate the glory of the Venetian state.
