Dvořák Stabat Mater in piano version. Conductor: Martin Bussey; Soloists: Emily Burnett (sop), Lucy Vallis (alto), Will Smith (tenor), Peter Edge (bass); Pianist: Catherine Barnett. Dvořák’s Stabat Mater for soli, choir and orchestra is a religious cantata based on the text of Jacopone da Todi’s 13th century poem, which describes Mary’s grief at the death of her son. Whilst it comes from a place of great personal tragedy, it expresses tremendous hope and is one of the towering monuments of choral music.
