The Sydney Consort presents the Australian premiere of Stabat Mater, a religious work for three voices & strings by 18th century Bohemian composer and Jesuit priest  Karel Loos. This is part of the ensemble’s traditional Good Friday concert  to which all are welcome.

Loos’ Stabat Mater is a powerful and moving composition which paints a picture of the Roman Catholic Holy Week liturgy during the composer’s time. The music brims with religious depth and meaning.

The performers:

Belinda Montgomery  soprano/ Nicole Smeulders  alto/ Richard Black tenor/ Craig Everingham  bass/ Stan Kornel  baroque violin/ Julia Russoniello  baroque violin/ Valmai Coggins  baroque viola/ Monika Kornel  harpsichord
