Suffering – Musical


Josep Maria Gregori


Officium Hebdomadæ Sanctæ (responsori O vos omnes) by Thomas Louis of Victoria (1585) i Stabat Mater (stanza: Stabat Mater dolorosa) by Giovanni Battista Pergolesi (1736)

Introductory remarks:

At the foot of the Cross, Tree of Knowledge and Tree of Life units in Jesus, Mary is united to the sacrifice of her Fill. (Annick de Souzenelle). The dramatic sound of the Holy Week’s tenebra offices in the suffering of the Passion in the tears of the Stabat Mater dolorosa. Mary wraps up in silence the suffering of her Fill: her virginal heart, united to Her, awaits the suffering of Humanity in the world’s creed.
