Classical Music | One of the Most Famous Classical Music Works (In Person AND Online)


Trinity Youth Chorus and Trinity Baroque Orchestra perform Pergolesi Stabat Mater (1736). Pergolesi's Stabat Mater has enjoyed enormous fame ever since the eighteenth century. It was composed in the final weeks of Pergolesi's life (1710-1736). It is scored for soprano and alto soloists, violin I and II, viola and basso continuo (cello and organ). Pergolesi (1710-1736) was an Italian Baroque composer, violinist, and organist, leading exponent of the Baroque; he is considered one of the greatest Italian musicians of the first half of the 18th century and one of the most important representatives of the Neapolitan school. The Latin poem Stabat mater dolorosa is an emotive account of the Virgin's sufferings at the foot of the Cross.
