    Pergolesi's Stabat Mater

    Acclaimed vocal ensemble Exsultemus commemorates the 400th anniversary of the birth of Italian composer Giovanni Battista Pergolesi (1710-1736) with an intimate performance of his most popular sacred work, Stabat Mater. According to legend—-and drawing inevitable comparisons to Mozart’s fabled Requiem composition—-Pergolesi accepted the commission despite suffering from tuberculosis, rising in a fit of devotional frenzy before passing away at the age of 26. With this monumental work as a backdrop, Exsultemus presents a program of music from the Italian Baroque with additional music by Giovanni Felice Sances, Giacomo Carissimi, Girolamo Frescobaldi, and Natale Monferrato.
