Compline by Candlelight: Trinity Youth Chorus
The Trinity Youth Chorus, alongside the Trinity Baroque Orchestra, performed a special Compline by Candlelight service, a performance of Pergolesi’s Stabat Mater. Pergolesi’s work is based on the Stabat Mater Dolorosa hymn, a powerful meditation on the suffering of Mary as Jesus Christ's mother during his crucifixion. Arrangement by Melissa Attebury.
