Notes & Reviews:

We know very little about the life of Giovanni Battista Pergolesi, which contrasts strangely with the staggering fame of his music, as he died of tuberculosis at the age of twenty-six. His Stabat Mater remains the seminal work in an output of around a dozen religious pieces (oratorios, masses, and motets). Composed at the same time as the Salve Regina, written for just one solo voice (contralto in the version in F minor adopted here), it shares many similarities, both in its vocal coloration and in the emotional charge that radiates from the work as a whole.
