The sorrow of the cross pours from the page in this deeply captivating piece that pays homage to a mother's love. Based on an ancient sacred text (Stabat Mater Dolorosa), we experience the loss and deep sadness of the crucifixion and confront the awful price of redemption. The music is a tone painting filled with passion and expressive harmonies. The conversational qualities of the opening theme clarify the text and allow the director to really work on phrasing and enunciation. Duration: ca. 3:43.
