Το Stabat Mater, μεσαιωνικός ύμνος στο μαρτύριο της Παρθένου για τον Εσταυρωμένο Ιησού, έχει μελοποιηθεί διαχρονικά από ένα μεγάλο αριθμό συνθετών. Ένας από αυτούς είναι ο Αντόνιο Βιβάλντι. Ακούμε το μεγαλύτερο μέρος του δικού του Stabat Mater, από τον κόντρα τενόρο David Daniels και το οργανικό σύνολο Europa Galante υπό τη διεύθυνση του Fabio Biondi.

Stabat Mater, a medieval hymn to Virgin Mary’s suffering for her son’s crucifixion, has been an inspiration for numerous composers throughout history. One of them is Antonio Vivaldi. We hear most of his Stabat Mater.
The countertenor David Daniels and the ensemble Europa Galante are conducted by Fabio Biondi.
