Robert and Kathy Lee from Baltimore, Maryland have been supportive to my site for a long time. In 2019 I received Jan Engels Stabat Mater as a present and last month (June 2020) he sent me list of six(!) Stabat Mater composers not yet in my collection:
- Antonio de Cabezón (1510-1566), two Stabats: Stabat Mater con segunda parte and Stabat Mater con diferente glosa
- Henri Carol (1910-1984 )
- Cristóbal Galán (1630-1684)
- Robert Hunt (early 16th century) F
- Franciszek Kottritsch (about 1727 – 1987)
Robert and Kathy shared with me: I don’t remember exactly when I found Hans’ website but I used it extensively. I not only discovered the Stabat Maters he had but the record labels they were on, which were then sources of even more sacred music. I even searched through the missing composer list, probably more than once. So Hans played a significant part in helping me put together my collection.
They were so kind to donate all these CDs to me. I added them to the site (and YouTube channel) and again I could delete some composers from the list of Missing CDs. I am so grateful, thank you both very much!
