About Gloria and Stabat Mater
The unparalleled period-instrument Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment and its Choir move from anguish to exultation in this stirring program of Baroque masterworks. Featuring radiant soloists, including “ravishing” countertenor Iestyn Davies (Guardian, U.K.), the OAE begins with Pergolesi’s exquisite Stabat Mater, a profoundly moving portrait of a mother’s agony resolving in melodic grace. The second half moves to Vivaldi’s joyful Gloria, an exuberant hymn of praise with universal resonance.
Sung in Latin with English supertitles.
