"The Stabat Mater" of Giovanni Battista Pergolesi is one of the great sacred cantatas of the Baroque period. The text presents the crucifixion of Christ from the perspective of his mother, Mary. Both heart-rending and beautiful, listeners are sure to be drawn into the drama inherent in this music. Katherine Powell, soprano, and Monika Cosson, mezzo-soprano, will present this work accompanied by a string quartet and harpsichord, conducted by Christopher Powell.
