“Stabat Mater was the first of Haydn’s vocal works to achieve an international reputation” (Prof. H.C.Robbins-Landon) “the Scandalously neglected Stabat Mater … this version finds a distinctive place … Darlington takes note of period practice and finds extra detail. The other striking quality is the warmly atmospheric cathedral atmosphere, which yet allows ample detail … these are fresh clear voices, like Carwood, with keen experience of the choral repertory.” (Penguin Guide 3 stars)
