sacred cantata for soli, choir and orchestra, Op. 58

<em>”In the first part of Stabat Mater, pain and sorrow predominate in mood, while in the second we can find gradual reconciliation with the tragic fate, but also hope in the sense of suffering based on the composer’s deep Christian faith… Dvořák’s music is an essence of melodic beauty, instrumental abundance and admirably introverted and demanding solo parts that require chamber-music interplay…”</em>
