Pergolesi’s famous “Stabat mater”, a work for two soloists, strings and continuo quickly became a success throughout Europe.
However there are numerous indications that it was also performed by choirs from very early on. Particular movements were very probably sung by a two-part choir, whilst the arias were kept for the soloists.

In this edition, the outer movements and no. 8 are now scored for three-part choir (SMA) in contrast to the solo aria movements. Three further movements are set as trios for three solo voices.
The added parts are derived from the existing musical material. These lend this well-known work a completely new charm and provide a welcome addition to the repertoire for choral concerts.

- Arrangement for female choir (SMA) based on the Bärenreiter Urtext edition of the original work
- Clear, straightforward piano reduction
