A powerful setting of the Stabat Mater for soprano, baritone, strings and saxophone, with additional poems by the Russian Anna Akhmatova embracing the theme of a mother’s love for her son, is performed by distinguished soloists who join the Chorus, the BS Youth Chorus and the BSO under Gavin Carr, the work’s dedicatee.

The first half includes a world premiere, Canticle of Winter by Richard Blackford, for saxophone & strings.
