This release is dedicated to some of the most famous settings of the Stabat mater, revealing the genre's varying treatment by composers over the centuries. From Palestrina's effective use of polyphony to Pergolesi's unusually sparse instrumental accompaniment, we move forward in time to contributions by Vivaldi and Haydn. These compositions rank among some of the most famous and affective music ever composed.

Premio Strega 2009 - È notte, l'orfanotrofio è immerso nel sonno. Tutte le ragazze dormono, tranne una. Si chiama Cecilia, ha sedici anni. Suona il violino in chiesa, dietro la fitta grata che impedisce ai fedeli di vedere il volto delle giovani musiciste. Passa la vita all'Ospedale della Pietà di Venezia, dove le giovani orfane scoprono le sconfinate possibilità dell'arte eppure vivono rinchiuse, strette entro i limiti del decoro e della rigida suddivisione dei ruoli. Ma un giorno le cose cominciano a cambiare, prima impercettibilmente, poi con forza sempre più incontenibile, quando arriva un nuovo compositore e insegnante di violino. È un giovane sacerdote, ha il naso grosso e i capelli colore del rame. Si chiama Antonio Vivaldi. Grazie al rapporto conflittuale con la sua musica, Cecilia troverà una sua strada nella vita, compiendo un gesto inaspettato di autonomia e insubordinazione.

Stabat Mater is a 13th-century Roman Catholic hymn to Mary. It has been variously attributed to the Franciscan Jacopone da Todi and to Innocent III. There are two Stabat Mater hymns, one the Stabat Mater Dolorosa is about the Sorrows of Mary, the other, Stabat Mater Speciosa joyfully refers to the Nativity of Jesus. The title of the sorrowful hymn is an incipit of the first line, Stabat mater dolorosa ("The sorrowful mother stood"). The joyful hymn refers to "The beautiful mother stood". The Dolorosa hymn, one of the most powerful and immediate of extant medieval poems, meditates on the suffering of Mary, Jesus Christ's mother, during his crucifixion. It is sung at the liturgy on the memorial of Our Lady of Sorrows…

"The latest Vivaldi recording on Naïve…focuses on sacred works: the Stabat Mater (RV 621) and Nisi Dominus (RV 608), both performed with potent expression by the fine period group Ensemble Matheus, led by Jean-Christophe Spinosi.
Vivaldi, also a priest, wrote the Nisi Dominus for the Ospedale Della Pietà in Venice, where he taught orphaned girls the violin. The countertenor Philippe Jaroussky wields his sweet-toned, radiant voice to emotive effect, displaying both a rapid-fire coloratura technique and a poignant, lyrical expressiveness, particularly haunting in “Cum dederit.”
In the more austere Stabat Mater, Marie-Nicole Lemieux sings with a gripping sense of drama, her darkly rich, agile contralto illuminating the text with anguish and passion.
The Ensemble Matheus plays with vigorous flair and sharply etched dynamic contrasts. Its crisp period approach sounds alternately fiery and gently warm, with dramatic explosions of color in “Surgite postquam” and almost inaudible whisperings at the beginning of “Cum dederit.”
The disc also includes a Crucifixus from a Credo attributed to Vivaldi (RV 592), a moving duet reminiscent of Pergolesi’s Stabat Mater."

Two of Bach s finest cantatas, both for solo alto, composed in Weimar (1714) and Leipzig (1726) respectively, are here coupled with the delicious agony of grief that is Pergolesi s 'Stabat mater', an acknowledged masterpiece by one of the 18th century s most influential composers.

This is the simply a slpendid recording- well paced, energetic and in excellent sound. I have a suspicion that many people drawn to these works pay undo emphasis on the choir [or they are choir singers] and understandably get frustrating when the choir is not front and center in the musical proceedings. But what Poulenc wrote here does not emphasize the choir [he was a master instrumentalist after all!] so the orchestra should be more prominent at times. Ragardless, this is a great performance!

Antonín Dvorák's Stabat Mater, Op. 58, written in the aftermath of the deaths of three of his children, is a sober and powerful work, inexplicably neglected and unlike any other work of choral music from the 19th century. Perhaps most performances don't capture its full weight, but this live recording from the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra under Mariss Jansons, does so. There are many deep pleasures here. The orchestra's choir is extraordinary: rich yet without a hint of wobble and utterly clear in its sense of the text. Jansons keeps things at a deliberate pace that lets the music breathe and the currents of personal experience rise to the surface. The soloists, none terribly well known, are fine in their individual numbers, but absolutely transcendent in ensembles, nowhere more so that in the sublime "Quando corpus morietur" finale (track 10); there are a couple of other strong recordings of this work, but it seems likely that no one has ever matched this conclusion. The live recording from the Herkulessaal in Munich is impressively transparent and faithful to the spontaneity of the event. A superb Dvorák release.

As the old saying goes, "the third time's the charm." This is indeed the third time the German label Accent has issued this coupling of Domenico Scarlatti's Stabat Mater with João Rodrigues Esteves' Missa a oito voces. The first time was in 1990, when the recording by Currende under the leadership of Erik van Nevel was new, and the second in 1998 as part of a box set containing this and several recordings by Concerto Palatino. No complaints here, though, as this is one of the finest discs Accent has to offer.
