CLASSICAL OPUS no.94

Giovanni Batista Pergolesi: “Stabat mater”

ジョバンニ・バティスタ・ペルゴレシ:「スタバット・マター」

 

TIME COMMITMENT: 42 minutes

Ornate, magniloquent and exalted, this Marian hymn initially misleads with its prototypically laudatory majesty.  By the time we reach its 10th part (on the 28th minute mark), the unusual phrase structures begin to confuse the temporal organization.  It is hard to believe that this was penned by the same composer who shocked the late baroque mores with the levity of his opera buffa.

A REFLECTION

Love, that art Charity,

Why has Thou hurt me so?

My heart is smote in two,

And burns with ardent love,

 

Jacopone da Todi: “The Soul’s Over-ardent Love”
