Surfing over the Web you can find links with all kind of subjects (poems, books, paintings) related to the Stabat Mater. Some are good, some are not, some seem to have nothing to do at all with the Stabat Mater poem or the music inspired by it. I give a short description, and, in some cases, my opinion of the site, but, of course, you can decide for your self.
- Andreas Prittwitz – Looking back over the Baroque – Pergolesi, Stabat Mater
Andreas Prittwitz is a musician from Spain. He just sent me this Youtube video. He told me: “Trying to describe my music I would say it is original compositions with original instruments mixed ( I don´t like this word, prefer unify) with modern instruments ( Saxofone, Clarinet ) and improvisations”.
- Stichting Stabat Mater
The Dutch “Stichting Stabat Mater” (Stabat Mater Foundation) comes from private initiative early 1998. Its goal is the yearly performance of Stabat Mater compositions in the period preceding Easter. These performances should lead to a long-lasting tradition, a musical event that will be an important item on the cultural agenda. Therefore, the founders aim for a high standard of artistic quality, to make sure of an intense musical experience. Moreover, these performances are meant to contribute to the atmosphere of the Passion time. That is the reason that the musical programs will be executed in churches, especially those with excellent acoustical qualities.
