Program note.
The greatest challenge of the Stabat Mater text is to figure out how to set twenty stanzas of "pain and suffering" without making it all sound too depressing. So, before I began composing, I looked at a number of scores and recordings of Stabat Mater by various composers: DesPrez, Palestrina, Pergolesi, Boccherini, Vivaldi, Haydn, Dvorak, Rossini, Poulenc, Szymanowski, Penderecki, et al. It was fascinating to see what each composer did with regard to text setting: the variety of musical textures from movement to movement, different approaches to the use of fast or "allegro" music to offset the mood of the text, solo versus choral sections, etc. Each composer took a very personal and creative approach to the task. It was a fascinating study!

After weeks of listening and scrutinizing, I decided to divide the twenty-stanza text into six sections. It is my hope that the end result is formally coherent and emotionally affecting.

I. Lento Stabat Mater dolorosa …
II. Allegro Cuius animam gementem …
    O quam tristis et afflicta …
    Quae moerebat et dolebat …
III. Recitativo Quis est homo qui non fleret …
     Quis non posset contristari …
     Pro peccatis suae gentis …
     Vidit suum dulcem natum …
IV. Moderato Eia Mater, fons amoris …
     Fac, ut ardeat cor meum …
     Sancta Mater, istud agas …
     Tui nati vulnerati …
     Fac me vere tecum flere …
     Iuxta cruce tecum stare …
     Virgo virginum praeclara …
     Fac, ut portem Christi mortem …
V. Prestissimo Fac me plagis vulnerari …
     Inflammatus et accensus …
     Fac me cruce custodiri …
VI. Moderato Quando corpus morietur …
     Amen.
