Stabat Mater - Franz Joseph Haydn

Pre-concert lecture at 2 pm
Christ Church Chorale with Orchestra

Begin the journey of Holy Week with a performance of Haydn’s Stabat Mater, a setting of the 13th century Christian hymn to the Blessed Virgin Mary. Portraying the suffering of Mary during the crucifixion of Jesus, Haydn brings the text to life through his colorful use of the chorus and orchestra. Often considered his most beloved sacred work, Haydn masterfully captures the grief, despair, pain, fear, and hope of a mother witnessing the death of her son.
