Classical Music
Five movements of Giovanni Pergolesi's inspiring 'Stabat Mater' will be woven into the Passion narrative. It is a musical setting of a 13th-century Christian hymn to Mary, which portrays her suffering as Jesus Christ's mother during his crucifixion. The Stabat Mater is one of Pergolesi's most celebrated sacred works. He composed it in 1736 during his final illness from tuberculosis in a Franciscan monastery in Pozzuoli, and, as it is said, finished it right before he died.
