    Absolutely wonderful and a contender for the Stabat Mater recording
    Well....Jaroussky is on it, doesn't that automatically make it THE Stabat Mater recording?

    I will have difficulty in saying which is THE recording

    There is the Pappano with Pizzolato and Netrebko which is also outstanding. This one I think is one of Netrebko's finest performance on record.

    Then there is also the superlative sounds of Alessandrini with the Concerto Italiano with Mingardo and Bertagnolli, two outstanding voices of this period music

    If you haven't heard these, I will strongly recommend them

    I don't know if it's the music, what is being sung, how it's being sung or all of the above but this is one where I am moved to tears

    (well, I would be if weren't so 'ard)
    This had a faulty track, a forty-four second recitativo in part two that would not play. Of course our excellent-service-favourite-store-in-the-whole-wide-world Presto Classical sent the replacement disc by first class post, received the next day.

    There seemed little point in just listening to a forty-four second recitativo, so listened to it in whole again.

    Very moving

    Very true about the Pappano-Pizzolato-Netrebko! I know the former but not the latter actually. Thank you again for bringing something interesting to my attention....I'll check it out.

    I shall, although I am much more of a fan of modern historically informed performances (such a wanky description...but I suppose it's more precise than 'authentic' which is even wankier).

    I've been through quite a few Stabat Maters and the one I always come back to is still the 1983 René Jacobs recording, with 14-year-old Sebastian Hennig. Though not exactly what we usually expect in terms of vocals and minimal in instrumentation, it is immensely powerful.

    I like the mentioned Alessandrini one too, the Scholl-Bonney one — there's nothing like early Andreas Scholl, really, especially in sacred music
    — and the Hogwood recording with Emma Kirkby and James Bowman.

    Always nice to get a Messiah set. Is this your first set? Or do you have several?

    I have three: Hogwood, Trevor Pinnock and William Christie. I used to own the Marriner recording which I think I inherited in someway from someone but I borrowed it and never got it back.
