To read

Although the Stabat Mater is authentic Pergolese, unlike the multitude of apocryphal works attributed to him after his death, we know very little about its genesis. This poignant work by a musician who died tragically young at twenty-six years of age gave rise to a legend similar to that associated with Mozart’s Requiem. Tradition has it that the composer completed it on his deathbed. The reality appears to be more prosaic according to a number of modern musicologists and historians. Nevertheless, the fame of this work, which was frequently played and published from the eighteenth century onwards, made a significant contribution to the composer’s posthumous reputation. With its extraordinarily expressive arias and duets for soli, this work is one of a small number of masterpieces of the early music repertoire
