Eternal Light is a celebration of the power of one of the most famous pieces of Baroque vocal writing: Allegri’s Miserere.

Tracing a journey from the Sistine Chapel (where Allegri’s piece was exclusively heard) to Salzburg, we bookend our performance of the F-minor Requiem by Franz Biber and instrumental music by his mentor, Johann Schmelzer, with two versions of the Miserere: one reconstructed to sound as it did in Allegri’s day, the other in the version familiar to us today, with its glorious – but mis-transcribed – high Cs.

Immerse yourself in the exquisite textures and tones of Australia’s most celebrated chorus, Cantillation, along with the assured and expert Baroque specialists of the Orchestra of the Antipodes, for this sublime presentation of transcendent works of sheer beauty and brilliance.
