Description
Poulenc wrote his passionate Stabat Mater (and the Litanies à la Vierge Noir) after his visits to the sacred shrine of the Black Madonna of Rocamadour forever changed his life. Recorded here in an unrivalled performance by soprano Judith Howarth—with two choirs and orchestra—is Poulenc's sacred masterwork. The DVD extras include a "virtual visit" to the shrine with music by James Whitbourn, inspired by Poulenc.

"The 'extras' … defy the norm by adding value to the whole package, powerfully complementing the musical programme and offering genuine insights into the spiritual background to Poulenc's work…. The Clare and Cauis singers are augmented by the choristers and choral scholars of nearby St John's College, corporately bringing a youthful vibrancy and energy to the music…. [Christopher] Robinson conducts in a way that allows room for phrases to develop naturally.... This Stabat Mater interpretation, enhanced by Judith Howarth's rich, honey-toned soprano solos and alert playing from the BBC Philharmonic, can stand comparison with the finest in the record catalogue, while its visual presentation shades it ahead of the audio-only competition."—Choir & Organ

"The clarity of sound and picture, combined with an astonishingly high energy performance made my near-elderly pulse course with delight."—Evening Standard
