Piazza San Marco, Venice by Carlevarijs, from the online collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Taking its name from an anonymous early 16th-century comedy, La Venexiana presents vocal and instrumental works by Italian Renaissance organist and composer Andrea Gabrieli, as well as those of his nephew, Giovanni Gabrieli. Under the direction of countertenor and conductor Claudio Cavina, Musica a San Marco was recorded live in concert in the Church of Saint Lawrence in the Swiss canton of Saint Gallen.
