About the Stabat Mater
Soprano, Tenor, Bass and orchestra (flute, clarinet, 2 violins, cello, organ)
A very melodic Stabat Mater. It is clear that Casimiro composed opera's and his music reminds me of Donizetti as well as the young Verdi. The work is divided into 6 parts, mostly in a quiet tempo.
The "Analecta"-version of the text is used, with one deviation:

|About this CD:|
This CD is a gift that a Portuguese artist, the painter Luís Ança, sent to me. Very nice, as for years I had tried to buy it somewhere.
