Schubert composed the Latin "Stabat Mater", D 175, between the 4th and 6th April 1815, probably without any specific commission. The text had been appointed by Pope Benedict XIII in 1727 for use at the Feast of the "Seven Sorrows of the Blessed Virgin Mary" on the 15th September. Schubert set to music only the first four of the Stabat Mater's 20 verses, but each verse is repeated with a concluding coda.
