This CD contains the Stabat Mater by Antonio Maria Bononcini (1677‐1726), one of the earliest and most famous works in this genre, on a par with the Stabat Mater by Pergolesi.

In this work, in the tragic key of C minor, Bononcini reaches a noble purity of expression of the deep human feelings of the lamenting Mother. The polyphony is strong but never overwhelming, the melodic lines have a powerful simplicity and serenity, breathing a devotional piety and sincerity throughout the whole work.

Also presented on this CD is the Sacred Cantata Dio e la Vergine, for two soloists and ensemble.

Estévan Velardi is an Italian conductor and musicologist, specialised in the research, publication and (first) performance of musical scores from the Italian Baroque, notably the works of Stradella and Alessandro Scarlatti.

The booklet contains liner notes and sung texts.
