thanks for your kind opinions concerning my Harpsichord Concerto and Stabat Mater :)
I am not sure if I will "prolong the pleasure of the listener" ;) but I can show you next four parts of my Stabat Mater for a mixed choir. The performance is not perfect one and I am not wholly satisfided with the last part "Eia Mater" but...
Here is a full score:
and recording of the first live performance of the complete work:
Greetings form Poland
After exposure of the pain of Mary (measures 1 to 15), the tension rises as from the 1st "dum pendebat" (measure 16) and explodes up to the horror (crescendo since the measure 32 up to at the forte of measure 41). Then (measures 49 ssq), all the desolation that comes with Christ's death ends in a whisper on the "Pertransivit gladius." It is closer to the aesthetics of Arvo Pärt, of course, than to that of Charpentier, Dvorak and Rossini, but remains close to the spirit of Vivaldi and Pergolesi, with this feature : you do not use instruments to support the choir.And this is absolutely not necessary, because you create the emotion without using of artifice! I'll be happy if you compose music on the follow of the Stabat Mater, to prolong the pleasure of the listener. Thank you.
