Giovanni Gabrieli (c.1555-1612) is the greatest Venetian composer of the late Renaissance, and one of the most significant figures of the period. Since the time when Richard Charteris was invited by the American Institute of Musicology to edit Giovanni Gabrieli's complete works in twelve volumes for the series Corpus mensurabitis music, he has uncovered a considerable number of previously unknown works by this composer, and discovered a vast quantity of hitherto unknown sources of his music. This thematic catalogue presents data about these discoveries and many others, besides collating an enormous amount of widely-scattered information.

The catalogue covers: (1) the early music manuscripts and prints, almost all of which the author has consulted firsthand in collections in the northern hemisphere; (2) a selection of modern music manuscripts; (3) the plethora of modern editions and printed fragments; (4) the sound recordings, including 78s, long-playing records and CDs; (5) the relevant literature dealing with each work; (6) the nature of the vocal texts and their use at St. Mark's; (7) the doubtful and spurious works, among them pieces that are wrongly accepted today as genuine; and (8), the parodies of Gabrieli's works by other composers. There is much else in the book, not the least being a thematic indicator of each work and an English translation of each of Gabrieli's vocal texts. In short, this book will be an invaluable reference work for anyone concerned with the music of Giovanni Gabrieli, be they scholars, students or performers.
