Ensemble Profeti Della Quinta focuses on the vocal repertoire of the 16th and early 17th centuries. They create vivid and expressive performances for audiences today while considering period performance practices. From its core of five male singers, the ensemble collaborates regularly with instrumentalists and guest singers. Their programmes range from explorations of the Italian madrigal to seldom-heard Jewish sacred music and more. In 2011 the ensemble won the York Early Music Young Artists Competition and has since performed in Europe, Israel, North America, China and Japan.They have released 10 albums on the Pan Classics, tiroler landes museen, Glossa, and LINN labels. Originally from the Galilee region of Israel, the group is now based in Basel, Switzerland, where they regularly collaborate with the Schola Cantorum.
