The late 16th century was a period of remarkable developments in architecture and music in Venice. Split choirs were introduced and complex music by the Gabrieli and Monteverdi was written for the great Venetian churches. This project aims to reconstruct what the music would have sounded like at that time using the latest acoustic simulation technology, the results of acoustic measurements in the churches and in situ choral experiments. Musical examples in the reconstructed Ospedaletto, the Redentore, San Francesco della Vigna and the Basilica of San Marco will be played.
