cori spezzati

KOR-ree spet-ZAH-tee

[English, separated choirs]

A style of performance with groups of singers placed in different locations of a building. This performance style was developed in the late Renaissance and Baroque eras. Generally the choirs are relatively small, and perform across a cathedral from one another. Giovanni Gabrieli especially is known for this style of composition, though he is by no means the only one to use it.


Giovanni Gabrieli: "Hodie Christus natus est"
