Notes & Reviews:
Haydn's Stabat Mater dates from 1767 and is among the earliest of his large-scale vocal works. It became a great success. Copies of it can be found in libraries across Europe, and it was a regular feature of the 'concerts spirituels' in revolutionary Paris. The work still has the ability to startle and move the listener in both its forward-looking harmonic style and emotional punch. The conductor Frieder Bernius is a distinguished scholar and conductor of early music, and has made many recordings with the Canadian ensemble Tafelmusik for Sony Classics. Booklet note and sung texts are included.
