2 sopranos and organ

The idea of this Stabat Mater came to me from reading this beautiful Latin text of the thirteenth century.

The return of rhyme in these twenty stanzas of three lines, a certain rhythm in these stanzas: All this led me to recite the text in a litany way, like an incantationin in a brief format of few minutes, unlike many works based on this most famous text which are quite developed. I also wanted to write a work accessible, with simple harmonies, and vocal lines that touch easily. This is important for a composer to write works within the reach of many people. 

This Stabat Mater was the last polyphonic work to be sung before the fire of Notre-Dame de Paris, April 15, 2019.

The organ part being difficult, this score contains also an easier version, at the request of the organist Yves Castagnet, from Notre-Dame de Paris.
