Andreas Scholl gave the work its first complete performance on
22 February 2008 at City Recital Hall, Angel Place, Sydney, Australia, with the Australian Brandenburg Orchestra under Paul Dyer. This is a video clip of ths world premier.

About the Stabat Mater

The Stabat Mater is popularly thought to have been written by the 15th century Franciscan friar, Jacopone da Todi, although it is also ascribed to the 12th century Innocent III and may even have been written as early as the 7th century by St Gregory the Great.  In any event, it was extremely well-known throughout Europe by the 15th Century.  More than 400 composers, from Josquin des Prés to Stanford, have set it to music, attracted by its epic and lyric character.

xxx TEXT
Traditional English version
Stabat Mater dolorosa
Juxta Crucem lacrimosa
Dum pendebat Filius. 
Stood the sorrowful Mother beside the cross weeping, where hung her Son
At the cross, her station keeping, 
Stood the mournful Mother weeping,
Close to Jesus to the last.
Cujus animam gementem
Contristatam et dolentem
Pertransivit gladius. 
Through whose soul weeping, compassionate and grieving, passed a sword.
Through her heart, His sorrow sharing,
All His bitter anguish bearing, 
Now at length the sword had pass'd.
O quam tristis et afflicta 
Fuit illa benedicta 
Mater Unigeniti ! 
O how sad and afflicted was that blessed Mother of the Only-begotten! 
Oh, how sad and sore distress'd
Was that Mother highly blest 
Of the sole-begotten One !
Quem moerebat et dolebat 
Et tremebat dum videbat
Nati poenas incliti. 
Who mourned and grieved and trembled when she saw the torment of her glorious child.
Christ above in torment hangs.
She beneath beholds the pangs 
Of her dying glorious Son.
Quis est homo qui non fleret 
Matrem Christi si videret 
In tanto supplicio? 
Who is the person who would not weep the Mother of Christ seeing, in such agony?
Is there one who would not weep,
Whelm'd in miseries so deep
Christ's dear Mother to behold ?
Quis non posset contristari
Christi Matrem contemplari
Dolentem cum Filio?
Who could not grieve with the Mother of Christ, seeing her suffering with her Son? 
Can the human heart refrain 
From partaking in her pain,
In that Mother's pain untold?
Pro peccatis suae gentis
Vidit Jesum in tormentis
Et flagellis subditum. 
For the sins of his people she saw Jesus in torment and to the scourge subjected.
Bruis'd, derided, curs'd, defil'd
She beheld her tender child
All with bloody scourges rent.
Vidit suum dulcem natum
Moriendo desolatum
Dum emisit spiritum.
She saw her sweet child dying abandoned as He gave up His spirit.
For the sins of His own nation
Saw Him hang in desolation
Till His spirit forth He sent.
Eia Mater, fons amoris, 
Me sentire vim doloris 
Fac, ut tecum lugeam. 
Oh Mother, fountain of love, make me feel the power of sorrow, make it that I may grieve with you.
O thou Mother! fount of love! 
Touch my spirit from above.
Make my heart with thine accord.
Fac, ut ardeat cor meum 
In amando Christum Deum, 
Ut sibi complaceam. 
Make that burns my heart burn in loving Christ God, that Him I may please.
Make me feel as thou hast felt.
Make my soul to glow and melt
With the love of Christ our Lord.
Sancta Mater, istud agas, 
Crucifixi fige plagas
Cordi meo valide
Holy Mother, do this: of the Crucified one fix the wounds in my heart securely
Holy Mother! pierce me through.
In my heart each wound renew
Of my Saviour crucified.
Tui nati vulnerati 
Tam dignati pro me pati 
Poenas rnecum divide. 
Of your wounded child, who thus deigned for me to suffer, the pain may I share.
Let me share with thee His painxx
Who for all my sins was slain, 
Who for me in torments died.
Fac me vere tecum flere 
Crucifixo condolere
Donec ego vixero. 
Make me truly with you weep, with the Crucified sorrow, as long as I live.
Let me mingle tears with thee, 
Mourning Him who mourn'd for me
All the days that I may live.
Juxta Crucem tecum stare
Et me tibi sociare 
In planctu desidero. 
Beside the Cross with you to stand and you accompany in your weeping, I desire.
By the cross with thee to stay, 
There with thee to weep and pray
Is all I ask of thee to give.
Virgo virginum praeclara
Mihi jam non sis amara:
Fac me tecum plangere. 
Virgin of virgins chosen, with me be not bitter; make it that I with you weep.
Virgin of all virgins best
Listen to my fond request
Let me share thy grief divine.
Fac, ut portem Christi mortem
Passionis fac consortem
Et plagas recolere. 
Let me I carry Christ's death and suffering, share his Passion, and His wounds remember.
Let me, to my latest breath
In my body bear the death
Of that dying Son of thine.
Fac me plagis vulnerari
Cruce hac inebriari
Ob cruore Filii. 
Let me be wounded with his wounds, inebriated by this Cross, because of the love of the Son. 
Wounded with His every wound, 
Steep my soul till it hath swoon'd 
In His very blood away.
Inflammatus et accensus
Per te, Virgo, sim defensus
In die judicii. 
Inflamed and afire, by you, Virgin, let me defended by you, Virgin, on the day of judgement.
Be to me, O Virgin, nigh
Lest in flames I burn and die
In His awful Judgment day.
Fac me cruce custodiri
Morte Christi praemuniri
Confoveri gratia.
Let me be guarded by the Cross, by Christ's death armed, and cherished by His grace.
May the Cross forever guard me,
May the death of Christ protect me 
Ever cherished by His grace.
Quando corpus morietur
Fac ut animae donetur
Paradisi gloria. 
When the body dies, grant that to my soul is given the glory of paradise.
While my body here decays 
May my soul Thy goodness praise
Safe in Paradise with Thee.
Amen.  Amen.

I am thrilled not only to have been able to see/hear this performance but, *not*least*, to discover a website philosophy (here) that values human appreciation (consciousness-of) *ABOVE* security-rigamarole and dollars-made-in-the-process. I wish more people could be so encouraged, and at a far earlier stage in their web-experience than mine (=year 13). Thank you.

20 March 2009

Èper me la miglior voce contemporaneache interpreta produzioni specie del periodo barocco che io adoro e considero il più ricco ed espressivo per tutto ciò che lo riguarda. Grazie a Rosano (italiano!) che gli aggiunge il valore che nel mio paese non gli è riconosciuto. Amo la voce del controtenore che in Italia non è apprezzata forse perchè si è assorbiti dall'ascolto di altri registri e artisti che io getterei in pattumiera. Soffro perchè Andreas non canta nei teatri Italiani però io lo cerco dappertutto perchè la sua voce mi salva l'anima e ravviva in me l'amore per la musica barocca che io considero il migliore antidepressivo attuale perchè va dritta al cuore e mi consente di vivere la mia quotidianità elevandola.Non posso esprimere in modi migliori ciò che sento.


Marie Anne Steenhuizen, Netherlands

David L, USA

18 July 2008

The sensitivity with which Mr Rosano has set this text, and the exceptional delivery by all of the musicians, including the hauntingly crystalline Mr Scholl, makes one wonder why more modern composers do not attempt to bridge the stylistic demands of the Baroque with modern musical accomplishments. In addition to the recording of such a fine work, I know I am not alone in wondering when the score itself will become available for others of us to attempt to recreate this beeautiful music!

Dear Mr Rosano,
I've heard the demo of your Stabat Mater and I was very excited. And now I wonder where I can buy the whole piece (on CD DVD etc.). It is not very clear with me. I`m looking forward to your response.


Marinus de Jong, Netherlands

Donna, USA

Listened again and again since my last post. Nothing this beautiful can be of this earth. I am convinced, without a doubt, that Marco and Scholl are gifts sent from Heaven to remind us...of truth and purpose. This is beautiful beyond imagination and there are just no words to describe it.


Donna Mark, USA

Deze muziek is prachtig, vooral samen met de mooie stem van Andreas Scholl. Is er ook bladmuziek van O quam tristis et afflicta. Wanneer het Stabat Mater op CD is wil ik graag een van de eersten zijn, ik zoek al meer dan een half jaar naar deze prachtige muziek. Met vriendelijke groet.

Joseph, France

A very original piece, an amazing mixing of modern harmonies and baroque style, which is the appropriate music for Andreas Scholl's perfect voice!  For both of you, Marco and Andreas, Bravo!

Gavin Bowtell, United Kingdom

21 May 2005

I think this is brilliant. I'm not a musician and have very little technical and musicological knowledge, but responded to this as if it were a religious experience - and encounter with the Transcendent. It is poignant and is a piece of music that demands full silent attention and creates a well of stillness within the listener. Please let me know when I can buy it.


Rianna, Ireland

9 May 2005

This is sublime. I've just recently discovered the Stabat Mater (Pergolesi version) and the voice of Andreas Scholl and am avidly pursuing both (figuratively speaking).


Bernadett Fodor, Hungary

A truly magnificent work, that really evokes a feeling of tranquillity, I was shaken to the core of my soul on first hearing it, and have listened to it nearly continuously for a day, and still manage to be taken away by it. Please, Please, Please, when will this be released?


Frances Hancock, United Kingdom

Absolutely transcendant... Any ideas when more will be available
and any word on the score's publishing date*? Sounds like it would be a wonderful work to feature on my recital if it's available any time soon :-)


*webmaster: the score is registered but not yet published. Please watch this site for new information.

Sara Haugland, USA

20 February 2005

Excellent expression - I enjoy how the voice moves with the music accompanying it.  Why
* simply this section of the poem and not the happy ending that goes with the sadness of its beginnings?  My favorite part is that "unigeniti" is repeated - adds that extra emphasis. Well done.


* webmaster: this MP3 is a very small part of Rosano's composition, which sets the whole poem: click here

Je viens seulement de me connecter à internet et, par le plus grand des hasards, la première musique que je découvre est ce triste et beau stabat mater. Je vous écrit toute l'émotion ressentie à l'écoute de la profondeur de ce chant. Quelle belle rencontre que celle d'un compositeur sensuel et intelligent avec la perfection d'une voix inimitable.Mes plus vifs remerciements n'ont d'égal que mes félicitations! Mille bravos!

Loved it, I am a huge fan of Andreas Scholl - he could sing the phone book and still sound good. But this is much better!


Tom O Drisceoil, Ireland

26 October  2004

Marco Rosano's new Stabat Mater is a piece that, judging from the O Quam Tristis, is one of delicacy, beauty and profound melody in the baroque tradition. Can't wait for the complete piece to be released on CD!


Solveig Hill, United Kingdom

Andreas and Marco, Thanks for such a wonderfullness. It touches my heart with unbroken light. I'm practicing counter-tenor scores. If it's possible to obtain scores of this Stabat Mater, please send a mail.I hope I find the CD allready. Greetings, Wouter


Duncan Horn, United Kingdom

Haunting, beautiful, magnificent, words cannot do justice to the sound. Andreas' voice soars over the notes, growing, fading, tearing at the heart. The strings accompany him as a joined body, they are as one. Composer and artists are to be congratulated on a wonderful work. The music opens doors of thought and contemplation, perfect for the end of the day. The disappearance of the voice is like the disappearance of the light, darkness, nothingness is left, only the shadows and memories as the music echoes inside the head.

Maravillosa obra. Excelente interpreción a mi parecer por el mejor contratenor.


Annemarie Mast, Netherlands

11 April 2004

Dear Andreas and Marco, The music touches my heart. It is almost to beautiful to listen to. In het Nederlands (want dat begrijpt Andreas): het stuk raakt mij in mijn hart, het is bijna pijnlijk om naar te luisteren. Groeten.


Arjen Dijkstra, Netherlands

The Stabat Mater setting by Marco Rosano is gorgeous music, gorgeously performed.  I just came back from a performance of music for unaccompanied chorus by 20th century Philadelphia composers, much of it sacred. The choral ensemble is called Schola Nova, and it superbly conducted by Dr. Tim McDonnell. Harold Boatrite's pieces were the clear high point for me, though all of the works were exquisite. The musical performance was stunning. This composition by Marco Rosano is exquisite, as well. Rosano harkens back to Vivaldi's style, and in places recaptures the magic of Vivaldi's melody in his own Stabat Mater -- but he does this in a very interesting way, with fully independent part-writing, and beautiful melodies. Vivaldi is not imitated. His musical spirit is evoked, and a dialogue between Rosano and Vivaldi ensues. And Andreas Scholl interprets it with incredible mastery. One cannot speak of his voice alone, whose pure tonal quality reminds me of finely burnished cherry wood. One must speak of his musical intelligence as well, because it shines through in every choice he makes in phrasing and expressivity.  I look forward to hearing it performed with acoustic instruments, as well as to hearing the rest of the composition. The recording presented here suffers only somewhat because the the expressivity of synthesized strings is limited, though I must admit, these synthesized strings sound good.


Sabrina Imparato, Italy

I think it is wonderful! And well singed! Compliments.


Lukas Sainitzer, Austria

We - my wife and I - like this clip very much, we congratulate the composer for this beautiful opus and we want to buy the recording as soon as it will appear. Please let us know, when the CD is available! Thanks L.S. and U.S.

From the first note, this piece possesses me, haunts me even.  I find it very intense and because of this I have to listen to it intensely. Everything stops – I don’t want to move – I am pinned to my chair. The phone would be ignored if it rang during this.  I am not Christened and have no religion in my life, although this is something I am beginning to explore and become more open to.  So I come at this not from a religious point of view but as a woman and as a mother.  The combination of this text, this music and the voice of Andreas Scholl cuts right into the very heart of me.  I feel and I see the agony.  I’m often moved to tears by it.  Such powerful, emotional writing. Thank you.

The new Stabat Mater -- Quik - quik, find someone to record it !  I love it - thank you Marco, it´s fantastic and very beautiful - and - Andreas´s voice is the perfect choice.

I am eagerly waiting for Marco Rosano's new Stabat Mater to be recorded & released.


Magdalena Grysinska, Poland

1 December 2003

Music of Stabat Mater is easy to foresee (my computer is "slowthinking" so the music interrupted very often and I had to guess which note will be next) but its very beautiful. I mean: I had hard weekend but now I see it wasn't so bad. That is what I want to hear in music!


Jacek, Poland

13 June 2003

You asked for the opinion of the Stabat Mater demo mp3 - it is just more than beautiful.


Judith Ross, USA

I am very impressed with your musical composition of the new Stabat Mater. Where can I purchase a copy of it?  (Webmaster's note: It's not recorded yet.) Thank you for sharing this special gift of inspiration with us.  Sincerely,

... this new Stabat Mater is very good, it fits on your voice extraordinarily.

28 November 2002

My most sincere congratulations to the composer, as this Stabat Mater is one of the most beautiful ones I have ever heard.  I consider it as a second skin for Andreas' voice as it suits him so fantastically well.  Once again: congratulations!!


K R Thorne, USA

11 November 2002

I love the new Stabat Mater!  It suits Andreas' voice so well; even the demo recording's accompaniment was lovely.  I can hardly wait for the official recording!


Naomi Powell, UK

November 2002

We are very honoured to have this chance to listen to music created as a vehicle for Andreas. We often struggle to find words to describe the special qualities of his voice. Here you have a musical expression and appreciation of the beauty and purity of his voice, his control and subtlety of phrasing. It has a peaceful, almost hypnotic appeal. I also was reminded of Cum dederit and of the Taizé chants. Heartbreakingly beautiful in its simplicity.  With many thanks and best wishes for the success of your project.


Taeko Sugiyama, Japan

8 November 2002

I have listened to new Stabat Mater many times and my first impression is just beautiful ! and not only beautiful but also ...  I do not understand how I may express this sense in English :-(   Anyway I can't wait to hear the rest of the new Stabat Mater. Thank you, Mr Rosano and Mr Scholl.


Peter, Canada

7 November 2002

I think Mr Rosano has done a fine job of setting the words and I would love to hear the rest of the work. It evokes the same feelings in me as when I listen to the same work by Vivaldi, although I am sure that the final version will probably be quite different. Have you any idea how long the the entire composition is and how one would get a copy of the score?  I would like to perform it.


Bernadette Kazuko, Japan

7 November 2002

Thank you very much for a very wonderful present for today. I hear new Stabat Mater many times very beautifully. We wish to express our gratitude to Mr Marco Rosano who composes for the voice of Andreas.


Edward Verhaeghe, Belgium

November 2002

I listened carefully to your demo and composition, and here are my two cents, just because you requested feedback. I love the minimalistic beginning... just Andreas and one instrument... I think this approach is the strong point of the song... the more instruments you add, the more accessible it is going to sound, but maybe the less 'authentic' and intimate.  The beginning of the song reminds me of Albinoni's adagio g-moll of course. VERY NICE, and the vocals are incredibly strong and sincere.  All in all a very nice surprise.  Thanks so much and please keep us posted !


Nadine Fäller, Germany 

7 November 2002

Oh, such a lovely surprise finding THAT after arriving back from a trip with the choir. Thank you very much for thinking of us, Marco (and Andreas) !  :-)   My first impression: Oh yes, I DO like it!  I've listened to it several times now.  Perfect adaptation to Andreas' strengths! Very nice, soft, elegiac sounds... how I love such!  It reminds a bit of Albinoni - mixed up with Cum dederit maybe ;-) ...  and in terms of the intimate mood in the beginning... it's just giving me goose-bumps!  A great pendant to the Stabat Mater I've recently "had to" listen to, in the conservatory: most of the pieces sung in C-D-E chords - something that I can do without very easily! 


Sue Loder, England

7 November 2002

How wonderful to hear new music being composed for Andreas; this is how so much great music came into being in the past - written for particular gifted singers and it's such a shame that this great tradition isn't carried on so much these days.   So thank you to Marco Rosano,  and I wish you the best of luck in the development of project.  Certainly very accessible and immediately attractive to the ear and plays to Andreas' great strengths.  It sounds promising and I have to say that it was so good to hear Andreas sing something new!!   Good luck to all involved.


Sheila Jackson, UK
