Te Deum

Te Deum

The legendary Medieval sequence Stabat Mater is a telling of the Passion story through the eyes of the Virgin Mary, reaching out with her hands from beneath the cross to her dying son. The text inspired František Ignác Tůma to compose a four-voice cantata with the same title. Antonio Caldara was another member of the circle of composers surrounding the Viennese court. His duets and trios demonstrate his experience with opera as well as with sacred polyphony. Another composer who worked wonders with polyphony was Antonio Lotti, whose various musical settings of the Crucifixus are among the most beautiful choral compositions in this format.
