    Rossini's is by far my favourite, both to listen to and to sing.

    Szymanowski's my first choice followed closely by Dvorak and Haydn.

    As mentioned in #8, there's a very impressive Stabat Mater in Liszt's Christus Oratorio.

    I have three recordings of Stabat Mater, which I rank as follows:

    1. Pergolesi - most outstanding, conveys the great sense of anguish
    2. Vivaldi - excellent
    3. Rossini - beautiful work but too grandiose and operatic for the subject to suit my taste

    Vivaldi's is my absolute favorite. To me this is the most dolorose of the bunch.

    Yes, this. I think I read your post a couple weeks ago and went to listen to the Vivaldi Stabat Mater, and it really did it for me.

    Pergolesi's is good too. So is Arvo Pärt's.

    Nice list ! I've always been partial to modal polyphony, so i'd choose the Josquin over all others, even though it's just a motet compared to multi-movement works.

    I've sung Haydn's and would put in a word for it.

    This week it has been Vivaldi's Stabat Mater with Andreas Scholl. Sublimely beautiful and I listen to it over and over. Next week? Who knows.

    On Spotify there is a playlist of almost 15 hours of Stabat Maters put together by "Merceriai" to enjoy. Wow!
