From a live performance on March 10, 2012, of two otherworldly choral works. Vaughan Williams’s stunning Mass in g minor for double chorus is beloved for its ethereal sonorities, and Domenico Scarlatti’s setting of Stabat Mater is achingly moving with its expressive and hauntingly beautiful vocal lines. Featuring Douglas Freundlich, Theorbo.


  1. Stabat Mater Dolorosa, Domenico Scarlatti
  2. Mass in g minor for Double Chorus, Ralph Vaughan Williams


“I feel privileged to have heard [this] two works performed this magnificently. Bravo to Musica Sacra!” — The Boston Musical Intelligencer
