Salomone Rossi's music has played an important role in the work of Profeti della Quinta since its beginnings. The Hebrew-speaking singers, who specialise in Italian Baroque music, have a direct link with Salomone Rossi, a Jewish-Italian composer.

Although Rossi was overshadowed in his day by the great success of his colleague and collaborator Claudio Monteverdi, his beautiful and refined madrigals not only fuse different musical traditions, but also mark an important milestone in the history of music: Rossi's Primo libro di Madrigali á 5 (1600) contains the first known printed intabulation for the theorbo. Rossi's Hebrew synagogue music is characterised by an elegant simplicity with madrigal additions. The programme also includes a number of compositions by Elam Rotem inspired by Rossi.
