The 13th and last movement of the Stabat Mater by Antonio Bononcini, performed by the Scholars Pro Musica at St. Peter's, Mount Maunganui, New Zealand, on the 2nd and 3rd November 2013. Translation: When my body dies, grant that my soul is given to the glory of paradise.
This is a sensational chorus which begins with a muted largo on the image of the death of the earthly body, followed by a syncopated fugue on the final 2 words, "paradisi gloria": to the glory of paradise. Surprisingly the final Amen is omitted. -- Chalium Poppy
