Het Pergolesi Ensemble: Stabat Mater

There is no better way to take a moment of reflection in the run-up to Easter than by listening to Pergolesi's famous Stabat Mater. It is one of the most beautiful, most compelling pieces of religious classical music. This poem, about Mary's sorrow at the foot of the cross, inspired many composers including the Naples-based Giovanni Battista Pergolesi. It would become one of his last works.

Stabat Mater

Soprano Marianne Selleger first came into contact with the piece during her studies at the famous Mozarteum in Salzburg. She has always continued to sing it, first with a string quartet, but when she discovered how beautifully the fullness of a saxophone quartet matched this piece, she continued. Thus, together with Wendeline van Houten (soprano), the Pergolesi Ensemble was born.

They give a passionate and emotional performance, which will make many shed a tear. The music is about loss, but also about survival and hope and thus touches the core of the Easter message. The piece is comforting to all who have grieved the loss of a loved one, a theme that is unfortunately extra appropriate in these times of war.
