Staʹbat Maʹter

.

The celebrated Latin hymn on the Crucifixion, which forms a part of the service during Passion week, in the Roman Catholic Church. It was composed by Jacopone, a Franciscan of the thirteenth century, and has been set to music by Pergoleʹse, also by Rossiʹni.

In the catalogue of the Library of Burgundy, No.13,993, is the following:—

“Item. fol. 77. Benedictus Papa XII. composuit hanc orationem: ‘Stabat Mater dolorosa iuxta crucem,ʹ etc., concessitque cuilibet confesso pœnitenti dicenti eam pro qualibet vice 30 dies indulgentium.” (Sixteenth century.)
