Pergolesi Stabat Mater

4th Movement: Quae moerebat et dolebat. Alto solo.

The women of our choir are planning to do the whole Stabat Mater during Lent, probably on the Saturday before Palm Sunday, at the end of the usual Stations of the Cross service that our parish holds on Saturdays in Lent. Two mezzos and two sopranos will divide up the solos, and on a few of the movements all four, plus one additional alto, will sing. No orchestra, just organ accompaniment. Thankfully, our parish's organ has some decent stops for baroque music.
