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.
This edition corrects and replaces the older publication by the “Süddeutscher Musikverlag” (SM 2600). Any discrepancies between the score and vocal score have been corrected, and the work is now presented in a modern, clear layout.
The orchestral parts are available in computer print for the first time.
