A concert featuring some of the most sublime sacred music ever written.

The Spiritual Forest is drawn from Monteverdi’s Selva morale e spirituale (1641), his great anthology of liturgical works composed during his career in Venice. It was to be the last collection of Monteverdi’s music published in his lifetime, and represents the final flowering of his great genius.

These uniquely inspired works confirmed Monteverdi as the leading composer of his generation, exemplifying his consummate compositional prowess and his ability to put into music the deepest of human emotions.

Australia’s premier Baroque chorus of professional singers, Cantillation, will be joined by a band of 14 specialist orchestral players to deliver a transcendent sonic experience.
