Pianto della Madonna, by Giovanni Felice Sances (c. 1600-1679)
Nuria Rial, soprano with L'Arpeggiata under the direction of Christina Pluhar

Stabat mater dolorosa
iuxta crucem lacrimosa,
dum pendebat Filius.

Cuius animam gementem
contristatam et dolentem
pertransivit gladius.

O quam tristis et afflicta
fuit illa benedicta
Mater Unigeniti!

Quae moerebat et dolebat
et tremebat cum videbat
nati poenas incliti.

Quis est homo qui non fleret
Christi matrem si videret
in tanto supplicio?

Quis non posset contristari
piam Matrem contemplari
dolentem cum Filio?

Pro peccatis suae gentis
vidit Iesum in tormentis
et flagellis subditum.

Vidit suum dulcem natum
moriendo desolatum,
dum emisit spiritum.

Fac ut portem Christi mortem
passionis fac consortem,
et plagas recolere.

Fac me plagis vulnerari
cruce hac inebriari
ob amorem filii.

Inflammatus et accensus,
per te, Virgo, sim defensus
in die iudicii.

Fac me cruce custodiri
morte Christi praemuniri
confoveri gratia.

Quando corpus morietur
fac ut animae donetur
paradise gloria. Amen.

The grieving Mother stood
weeping beside the cross
where her Son was hanging.

Through her weeping soul,
compassionate and grieving,
a sword passed.

O how sad and afflicted
was that blessed Mother
of the Only-begotten!

Who mourned and grieved
and trembled looking at the torment
of her glorious Child.

Is there on who would not weep,
whelmed in miseries so deep,
Christ's dear Mother to behold?

Who would not be able to feel compassion
on beholding the pious Mother
suffering with her Son?

For the sins of his people
she saw Jesus in torment
and subjected to the scourge.

She saw her sweet offspring
dying, forsaken,
while He gave up his spirit.

Grant that I may bear the death of Christ,
the fate of his Passion,
and commemorate His wounds.

Let me be wounded with his wounds,
inebriated by the cross
because of love for the Son.

Inflame and set on fire,
may I be defended by you, Virgin,
on the day of judgment.

Let me be guarded by the cross,
armed by Christ's death
and His grace cherish me.

When my body dies,
grant that to my soul is given
the glory of paradise. Amen.
