When I lived in Ottawa the Public Library had a fantastic selection of choral CDs. I mined that library on a near-daily basis, so know a bit about choral music. There are actually several Stabat Maters but this is one of the more popular works.

Personally, I found the guy a touch more compelling. The way he hits those notes and keeps the volume in control. Quite impressive. But she’s a delight too. I just found that the man stood out a little bit more for me. Watch and see if you agree!
