Stabat Mater is a medieval poem telling the grief of Virgin Mary as she stands weeping at the Cross. Dvorak started working on the Stabat Mater after the death of his second child. It was in 1877 that he re-arranged it into its present ten movements.
Wymondham Choral Society and The Amadeus Orchestra of London provided us with a performance of the highest quality bringing the true spirit of Easter to St. Peter Mancroft Church, Norwich. I was very moved by the music that reflects on personal grief and faith in the afterlife. When my body has died, let it be that the glory of paradise is granted to my soul. Amen.
