Stephen Cleobury conducts Rossini's Stabat Mater in the wonderful surroundings of King's College Chapel in Cambridge. This is heard alongside Haydn's Symphony No. 49 and Brahms's funeral song Nänie.
"With its magical fusion of heartfelt solemnity and devotion with theatrical drama and joyous melodies, some argue that this represents the summation of Rossini’s art." (Graham Rogers, BBC Review)
