Pergolesi composed his Stabat Mater (1736) for soprano, alto, string
orchestra and basso continuo. It is deemed his best known sacred work. It was
commissioned by the Confraternità dei Cavalieri di San Luigi di Palazzo who
presented an annual Good Friday meditation in honour of the Virgin Mary.
Pergolesi's work replaced one composed by Alessandro Scarlatti which despite
being provided only nine years earlier, it was already being perceived as
"old-fashioned," so rapidly had public tastes changed.
