Comments:Hans van der Velden said:

The melody of Pergolesi is almost completely copied, but the text is german. The text of the Psalm according to Luther is reconstructed in such a way that its scheme is identical with the original Latin Stabat Mater poem. If you like boy singers, this is an interesting recording.
