Violino I part from 1-Stabat Mater dolorosa

4 minutes
Modern classical music

This is part 1 of 9 parts of a Stabat Mater. The work is for 2-6 part mixed choir with string orchestra. The origin of the text is quite uncertain. The monk Jacopone da Todi (ca. 1228-1306), Pope Innocentius III (ca. 1160-1216), and the saint Bonaventura (died 1274) are named as the most probable poet, but also the Popes Gregorius and John XII and Bernhard of Clairveaux (died 1135) are mentioned. The German musicologist C.Blume thought that possibly the English monk John Pecham, who stayed in France until 1270, might be the author.(information by Hans van der Velden(1937-2005)

I especially want to thank the Flemish composer Jan Van Landeghem for the coaching he gave me during the finishing of this Stabat Mater. In this part there are parlando's that are not audible in the Mp3 file. The Mp3 file is the result of the virtual sounds of Sibelius.

Which method of viewing music should I use?

Score Exchange has two methods to display previews of music: seView which uses regular html and javascipt and the Scorch plug-in from Avid which needs to be downloaded and installed onto your computer. Both have advantages and disadvantages:


seView, is the most compatible option. You should be able to view music on all modern web browsers including most mobile devices. Even if your device does not support javascript you should still be able to preview at least page one of the music.

You do not need to install any additional software to use seView.


Scorch is a free plug-in from Avid for displaying and printing music. It can also play the music that you're seeing. As modern web browsers are updated, Scorch is no longer compatible with many browsers. Scorch has never been compatible with mobile devices and some web browsers on Mac computers.

If your web browser does not install Scorch automatically, you can click here to download and install scorch manually.
