Giovanni Batista Pergolesi

Stabat Mater


Much of Pergolesi’s music was conceived in the tradition of the Italian trio sonata: as melodic (violin) lines with bass. His „Stabat Mater“ also was not written for more than one voice per part, although there is a long tradition of choral performance. Bärenreiter’s Urtext edition (BA 7679) of the „Stabat Mater“ as well as the arrangement of the work for female voices (BA 5692) are very well suited for performances using small forces.
