About the composer
Fanciszek Kottritsch was born in Poland about 1727. He was one of the composers from the Jasna Góra Monastry, played wind instruments and was officially employed in the ensemble of the Pauline Fathers as a oboe player from 1779 to 1787. Apart from his compositional activity, he got the credit as a copyist of many pieces in the repertoire of the ensemble. He died suddenly on April 27th 1787, and the fact he was buried in the vault of the Basilica shows his great recognition in the monastic community of Jasna Góra.
About the Stabat Mater

Kottrisch has used only stanza 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 9 (the first two lines), 10, 11, 12, 13, 16 and 20.

Robert and Kathy Lee have always been very supportive for the Ultimate Stabat Mater Website. This CD with Jasno Góra composers who were educated in this environment and who conducted intense and diversified musical activity, is another present from Robert and Kathy. Thank you so much!
