From darkness to light – the 190-voice Choral Arts chorus, orchestra, and soloists explore this timeless journey through Dvorák’s dramatic, highly expressive masterpiece. The yearly remembrance of the Crucifixion and Resurrection of Christ has inspired composers for centuries to some of their finest creations. Dvorák’s Stabat Mater (There Stood the Mother), surely his greatest choral work, stands as one of the most supremely eloquent and moving settings of this ancient text ever composed. The soaring melodies and sumptuous orchestration fully express the emotions felt by Mary, the Mother of Christ, from her sorrowful lament to the promise of glory.
