Pergolesi - Stabat Mater

Pergolesi - Stabat Mater

Regular price £5.99 Sale

The Stabat Mater, was Pergolesi’s last completed work. The image of the Virgin Mary grieving at the foot of the Cross inspired him to new heights of musical expression.
One of the main reasons for the Stabat Mater’s supreme popularity is Pergolesi’s inspired use of suspended harmonies. Whereas most of his contemporaries tended in their sacred music to move cleanly from chord to chord, Pergolesi heightens our emotional responses by holding notes from one chord into the next before resolving them.
