The Stabat Mater opens with an extended setting of the first four verses of
the traditional text, for soprano alto, tenor and bass soloists and chorus, the
mood of sad contemplation reflected in the key of B minor and the descending
contour of the melodic lines. The tenor soloist introduces the second verse, as
the key moves into D major, and the soprano starts the third verse, the bass
soloist the fourth, before a return to the first verse brings a dramatic climax.
The E minor setting of Quis est homo and the following three verses is entrusted
to the soloists, and the C minor Eia Mater is a solemn choral movement, followed
by the B flat minor Fac ut ardeat, introduced by the bass soloist, the chorus
adding the following plea.

There is a lightening of mood and quicker pace in the E flat major choral Tui
nati vulnerati, with its 6/8 metre, given weight by the contrapuntal central
section. Tenor soloist and chorus share the B major setting of Fac me vere, with
the touches of melancholy the texts dictate. This is followed by the gentle

A major Virgo virginum, for chorus. Fac ut portem Christi mortem is scored
for soprano and tenor
