The Marian Consort
Rory McCleery director
Scarlatti Stabat Mater 25'
Dani Howard new work (premiere) 20'
Gabriel Jackson Stabat Mater 18'
The powerful text of the Stabat Mater has inspired composers for centuries, and this concert contrasts two outstanding examples of heartfelt and poignant settings from the seventeenth century and from the composer of this year's festival commission, Gabriel Jackson. In between, the Marian Consort perform their newly commissioned work from Dani Howard, whose music has been described as 'sophisticated and incredibly beautiful'.
