Andrea Gabrieli’s splendid twelve-part madrigal Cantiam di Dio is a large-scale work of considerable grandeur, predominantly homophonic in texture throughout its two sections, and containing luxurious tuttis with all twelve voices and instruments; it praises God for creating heaven, earth and, of course, the sea.
