The Stabat Mater is authentic, unlike many apocryphal works attributed to Pergolesi after his death, but very little is known about its origins. This poignant work by a musician who died tragically at the age of twenty-six, gave rise to a legend reminiscent of the story attributed to Mozart’s Requiem. According to tradition, the composer finished it on his death bed. According to many musicologists and modern historians, the truth is quite different. However, the work has been extensively performed and published since the 18th century and has made a significant contribution to the composer’s posthumous fame. Its arias and duets for soloists are deeply expressive, and this work belongs to the small number of masterpieces of the early repertoire.
