Antonín Dvořák (1841-1904)
Stabat Mater, Cantata for Soloists, Choir and Orchestra
op. 58 (B 71, 1876-77)
The first of 12 videos featuring the complete Stabat Mater, recorded in 1952 by the top Czech artists of that time. The first part (Stabat Mater dolorosa) lasts over 21 minutes, so it had to be divided into three parts. In the videos description, there are the lyrics and translations (from here: stabatmater.info/dvorak.html), plus information about the respective artists: Introduction in Part I - 2, Václav Talich in Part II, Czech Philharmonic Orchestra in Part III, Karel Kalaš in Part IV, Prague Philharmonic Choir in Part V, Beno Blachut in Part VI, Drahomíra Tikalová in Part VIII, Marta Krásová in Part IX, and a short talk about Antonín Dvořák in Part X. Each video is accompanied by just one still picture, forgive me for that, but firstly, I didnt find that many appropriate pictures (note that, as far as I know, Dvořáks Stabat is the longest of all), and secondly, I was afraid it would drive attention away from the music. The video response is always the following part. Running time of the entire cycle is 85:13, so snuggle down and enjoy. I hope you will.

Drahomíra Tikalová, soprano
Marta Krásová, contralto
Beno Blachut, tenor
Karel Kalaš, bass
Prague Philharmonic Choir
Jan Kühn, choirmaster

Stabat mater dolorosa
Juxta crucem lacrymosa,
Dum pendebat Filius.
Cujus animam gementem,
Contristatem et dolentem,
Pertransivit gladius.
O quam tristis et afflicta
Fuit illa benedicta
Mater Unigeniti
Quae maerebat et dolebat,
Pia Mater, dum videbat (et tremebat)
Nati pœnas incliti
the grieving Mother stood
beside the cross, weeping
where her Son was hanging
through her sighing soul
compassionate and grieving
pierced by a sword
o how sad and afflicted
was that blessed
Mother of the only-begotten
who mourned and grieved
loving Mother, when she saw (and trembled)
her child with torment inflicted
