Further information:
"The Stabat Mater is a chant dating from the 13th century. Its intensely devotional fervour focuses on the suffering of Jesus’ mother at the foot of the cross. In this work I shift the focus to mothers who have lost their sons in world conflicts; past, present and future. It is a call to work for peace." Monica Oppen
