Dvořák’s setting of the 13th century hymn, ‘Stabat Mater’, which imagines Mary’s suffering during Christ’s crucifixion, was composed in 1876-1877, shortly after the death of Dvořák’s young children. “Dvořák rose above his personal challenges to create a highly sensuous statement of personal faith and belief clothed in symphonic robes, which culminates in a dramatic ‘Amen’.” (Quote from Michael Riley on Gramophone website.)
