Stabat Mater was composed by Pergolesi in 1736, when he was in the final weeks of his life, the release notes. His best known sacred work, it is based on a 13th-century Catholic hymn to Mary and has been set to music by many composers, including Scarlatti, Vivaldi, Haydn, Rossini, Poulenc and Dvorák. "Pergolesi's writing allows exquisitely warm voices to truly express the passion of this music," says Elizabeth Goldstein, coordina- tor of Music Fine Arts at First Church, in the release. "The Chroma Quartet accompanying assures a stellar unforgettable performance." Danish soprano Bolling graduated from the Malmö Conservatoire and studied at the Royal Northern College of Music in Great Britain, where she received a Professional Performer's Diploma. She has performed throughout Europe. Since moving to Sarasota two years ago, she has been pursuing her musical career with Gloria Musicae, Belle Canto and Key Chorale while maintaining a teaching studio, the release continues. Rocklein, a mezzo-soprano, has appeared throughout the United States and Europe, taking on opera roles such as Carmen in Carmen, Elizabeth in The Crucible, Hansel in Hansel and Gretel and Lucretia in The Rape of Lucretia, the release points out. The Chroma Quartet, formed in 2008 by vio- linists Christopher Takeda and Jennifer Best-Takeda, violist Michael McClelland and cellist Abraham Feder, is noted for its mem- bers' "dynamic musicianship," the release adds.
