Stabat Mater

Here is a programme entirely devoted to sacred music by Domenico Scarlatti. Four compositions, among which the famous Stabat Mater for ten voices, show the diversity of creative styles of the composer. While he is best known for his fabulous 555 keyboard sonatas, he is also a master of the polyphonic art inherited from the renaissance. In this recording, his writing is sturdily poly-choral as well as gently madrigal and he shows a craftsmanship that has little to envy from his illustrious Johann Sebastian Bach.
