Stabat Mater

Church of St. Mary the Virgin

This event has ended.

The first piece Belgian ensemble Vox Luminis ever sang together was Stabat Mater, Scarlatti’s masterpiece about the Virgin Mary that pays homage to the great tradition of polyphony. This signature work anchors a collection of powerfully moving compositions depicting the suffering of the Mother of God at the foot of the cross, fittingly performed in the Church of St. Mary the Virgin.

Please note: This event occurs at the Church of St. Mary the Virgin.
