    Default Your Favorite Stabat Mater (Hymn to Mary)

    What are your favorite Stabat Maters?

    Listening to Charles Villiers Stanford - Stabat Mater (1906).

    I found this interesting page: http://www.stabatmater.info/
    The author mentions her husband had 211 stabat mater cds.

    Pergolesi's is excellent
    John Browne's is perhaps his best piece

    I am not widely experienced, but I do love Vivaldi's best of those I have heard.

    I'm not a fan of Stabat Maters in general, but in addition to those mentioned by Vivaldi and Pergolesi, I think Szymanowski's is strangely compelling.

    How about a little applause for Haydn's Stabat Mater. There's also Poulenc and Dvorak.

    I love Poulenc's and Vivaldi's and Pergolesi's and would also mention these by Boccherini and Astorga; well worth listening to:

    Rossini miles ahead , it's so beautiful and harmonious, Dvorak comes second and then a lot more .

    Dvorak and Liszt (as a major part of Christus oratorio) are what I've liked best thus far.
    Wäre das Faktum wahr, – wäre der außerordentliche Fall wirklich eingetreten, daß die politische Gesetzgebung der Vernunft übertragen, der Mensch als Selbstzweck respektiert und behandelt, das Gesetz auf den Thron erhoben, und wahre Freiheit zur Grundlage des Staatsgebäudes gemacht worden, so wollte ich auf ewig von den Musen Abschied nehmen, und dem herrlichsten aller Kunstwerke, der Monarchie der Vernunft, alle meine Thätigkeit widmen.

    Rossini, Poulenc, Vivaldi, Pergolesi, they are not in order of importance to me.....depends on a mood what I'd like to listen to this week or this day....

    I would choose Pergolesi's Stabat Mater.

    And the transcription that Bach did of this piece (BWV 1083) is wonderful too:

    I have to go with Haydn's. I've even found myself singing the "Pro Peccatis" and "Flammis Orci" arias in the car :P

    Schubert: Stabat mater, D383 is also a nice option.
