A Marian Feast

Alessandro Scarlatti, the Neapolitan master of the opera and oratorio, has long been an Ars Lyrica favorite. This program juxtaposes his “Stabat Mater” (Mary’s lament at the crucifixion) with an oratorio on her immaculate conception (recorded by Ars Lyrica and soon to be released on Naxos!).
