There are an estimated 850 pieces in the catalogue (including versions offered in different transpositions), mostly transcribed by Michael from original sources in libraries all over Europe. These will be verified and re-catalogued over the next few years.

Orders and enquiries are welcome now at info@edition-mp.com and will be produced and sold by Peacock Press.

Gabrieli, Giovanni, In ecclesiis EMP1248 £6.60
Non-liturgical ISMN M-2056-1248-1
One of the best-known of Gabrieli's large-scale pieces. It was probably composed for one of the annual 'Redentore' celebrations in Venice; its text derives in part from the liturgy for Holy Trinity. Its scoring is very specific: a group of 6 instruments (3 cornetti, viola and two trombones), four solo voices SATT and a 4-voice Capella or ripieno choir SATB. A chorus score is also available. This version has a realised organ part based on one published on the Internet, whose arranger I have been unable to contact. The alternative version presents the original (unfigured) organ part. Instrumental parts, including an organ part with a blank right hand, are available on request.
Gabrieli, Giovanni, In ecclesiis EMP1253 £9.50
Non-liturgical ISMN M-2056-1253-5

Gabrieli, Giovanni, In ecclesiis: chorus score EMP1273 £4.00

This reduced score includes all vocal parts and organ, with an outline of the instrumental group.
Gabrieli, Giovanni, Magnificat a 14 (1615) EMP1251 £6.60
General Use - Vesper Canticle ISMN M-2056-1251-1
One of the least well-known of Gabrieli's large-scale pieces. It would have been most appropriate for a Marian Feast but can of course be sung at any time. It is cleffed TrSMAT MTBaBSb MATB and bc. The third choir is the Capella, in which all parts are sung (but can be doubled, for example by strings). Choir I is probably for a solo Tenor and four high instruments, Choir II for solo Soprano and four trombones or similar. Instrumental parts are available on request.
