first_imgOn Thursday next, Holy Thursday, people from across Donegal will be given a unque chance to celebrate a time of ‘Reflection through Music’ with the Donegal Chamber Orchestra.In St. Eunan´s Cathedral in Letterkenny at 2pm, the Donegal Chamber Orchestra with soloists Barbara Edwards (Soprano) and Louise Moore (Mezzo-Soprano) will perform Pergolesi’s STABAT MATER for soprano, alto, strings and organ.Giovanni Battista Pergolesi (1710-1736) was one of the most remarkable composers of the Baroque period. Despite his extremely brief career (he died of tuberculosis at 26 years of age) he left an impressive body of work that includes some of the finest pieces of sacred music ever written.His Stabat Mater composed in 1736 is Pergolesi´s best know sacred work wich has been a legend as much as a piece of music; Pergolesi literally finished the work on his deathbed.Stabat Mater is a sequence of Latin verses composed by Jacobus de Benedictis in the 13th century, in commemoration of the sorrows of the Virgin Mary.The words of the Stabat Mater are in two sections – the first part describes the anguish of Mary, standing at the foot of the cross on which her son was dying, while the latter part constitutes a prayer to the Virgin Mary. The work is traditionally performed across Europe during the Lent period and Holy week, prior to Easter.Following this tradition the Donegal Chamber Orchestra brings sacred music back to its proper place. Admission is free and all are welcome.http://www.facebook.com/pages/Donegal-Chamber-Orchestra/162763458741UNIQUE OPPORTUNITY TO CELEBRATE EASTER THROUGH MUSIC was last modified: March 31st, 2012 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Holy ThursdayletterkennySt.Eunan’s Cathedrallast_img read more
