Pergolesi's Stabat Mater with Ping and Woof

  • Cedar Hills United Church of Christ 11695 Southwest Park Way Portland, OR, 97225 United States (map)

A glorious Easter piece.

The Stabat Mater is one of Pergolesi's most celebrated sacred works, achieving great popularity after the composer's death. Jean-Jacques Rousseau showed appreciation for the work, praising the opening movement as "the most perfect and touching duet to come from the pen of any composer". The work is divided into twelve movements, each named after the incipit of the text. Much of the music is based on Pergolesi's earlier setting of the Dies irae sequence.
