STABAT MATER - Church
Holidays in the Land of Mary
Corelli Music continues with traditional concert series Church Holidays
in the Land of Mary in the historical churches of Estonia. The concerts in the
Holy Week will offer excellent music with the program Stabat Mater which is a
soulful piece describing the world through the eyes of a suffering mother. When
mostly in Christianity god is a masculine figure then Stabat Mater as well as
Magnificat are some of the few texts in which deity has a feminine perspective.
The title piece of the concert is famous Stabat Mater by Giovanni Battista Pergolesi. The
charming solos and duets will be performed by soprano Pirjo Jonas from Theater
Vanemuine and countertenor Ivo Posti who has now returned back from Netherlands
and operates here as the head of a Narva Museum.

On Good Friday and Holy Saturday Corelli Baroque Orchestra
and conductor Martin Sildos will bring the program STABAT MATER to the
audience. Our guests will hear the beautiful music written by the baroque
composers for the time of suffering. Stabat Mater is a medieval text in Latin. It
portrays Mary's suffering as
Jesus Christ's mother during his crucifixion.
"Can we find a stronger human connection than the one
between mother and child? Isn't the suffering shared in love even bigger? The
Holy Week which is marked with suffering and death - the symbol of key
questions of human life - leads us to the pain and joy of Resurrection
Sunday.", says the patron of these series and the president of Estonian Council of Churches, The Archbishop Emeritus
Andres Põder in the introduction of this concert. In addition the program includes Orchestral Suite No 2 in B minor by J. S. Bach, flute solo will be performed by Neeme Punder.
