Two visceral texts.
Four iconic settings.
Stabat Mater Palestrina
Stabat Mater Scarlatti
As we approach Holy Week, Allegri's familiar setting of Psalm 51, with its thrilling top C's, is set against James MacMillan's plangent and heartfelt response composed in 2009. Then we hear two beautiful settings of the Stabat Mater:
Palestrina's controlled eight-part exploration contrasts with the florid ten-part baroque vocal writing of Scarlatti.
