Tune of the Day: Bei des Mittlers Kreuze

from Schubert's Stabat Mater in F minor

This soprano aria is the second movement of Franz Schubert's Stabat Mater in F minor, D.383, composed in 1816. The Stabat Mater was originally a 13th-century Roman Catholic hymn to Mary, which has been set to music numerous times by many composers. Schubert's work, however, is a very particular one, since it is based on a German text by poet Friedrich Gottlieb Klopstock, who made a very free adaptation of the original poem.
