About the Stabat Mater
Mixed choir for five voices: Soprano, Soprano, Alto, Tenor, Bass
This Stabat Mater reminded me of the work of Palestrina. The 2nd, 4th, 10th and 18th stanzas are sung by the men’s choir in Gregorian chant.
The "Vatican" version of the text is used. Stanza's 5, 6, 7, 8, 13, 14, 15 and 16 are omitted.
|CD :||It is Finished: Stations of the Cross|
|About this CD:|
Recorded in May 6 & 7, 2006 in Elisabeth’s Church on the Auraria Campus. The music on this cd corresponds to the “stations of the cross”, a collection of both scriptural and legendary incidents associated with Christ’s final path to Calvary and his crucifixion there. The choir performs works from the 16th to 21st centuries, following the Via Crucis and ending with a prelude to Easter. I ordered the cd through the website of the St. Martins Chamber Choir. (www.stmartinschamberchoir.org).
