Stabat Mater

Medium stabat mater 2017

Saturday 7 March, 7.30 pm

St Dominic’s Priory, Southampton Road, London NW5 4LB

Pergolesi’s setting of the Stabat Mater text was hugely popular and remains so – it is often thought of as ‘the’ version of the Stabat Mater. The concert also includes the Sinfonia and Sonata al Santo Sepolcro by Vivaldi – his only sacred instrumental pieces. These deeply affecting works enhance the drama of the Stabat Mater. The concert will run without an interval and will take place in the intimate setting of the church’s Lady Chapel.
After the concert, the friars invite you for drinks (included in the price of the ticket), and there will be time to look at the wonderful
interior architecture of St Dominic’s.
