Antonio Caldara (1670–1736) is primarily known for his numerous oratorios and operas which brought him great popularity during his lifetime. Besides these large-scale compositions, Caldara also wrote smaller Vocal works, of which his “Stabat Mater” is the best known.
This publication is based on Eusebius Mandyczewski’s edition of the “Stabat Mater”, which has, until now, been the definitive edition. The notation and key signatures have been adapted to today’s standards. The effective instrumentation with two Trombones and Strings supports the solemn character of the work and enables smaller-scale performances.
