2.0 out of 5 stars Caveat emptor, 23 Nov. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The other two reviews I can see listed here for Alessandro Scarlatti's Stabat Mater do no refer to this recording - one of which mentions Arvo Part, Tavener Consort and Andrew Parrott, the other to Juan Diego Flórez, none of whom are on this recording.

However I am glad to see that Amazon's listing has been updated since I bought this CD, and has may more details, including the composer's first name, Alessandro. I'm a great fan of Domenico Scarlatti's Stabat Mater , and bought this CD under the assumption that it was a recording of this. Unfortunately this is his father Alessandro's work, and is nowhere near in the same league. The performances by the Camerata Polifonica Siciliana under Douglas Bostock are very adequate, the composition however is not. Dull Dull Dull as Mr Craig Revel Horwood says.

This review is from: Sicily Unpacked [DVD] (DVD)
If you're going to Sicily, watch this. Lovely Oratorio Santa Cita in Palermo with all the putti mimicking the stucco they framed, the chocolate shop in Modica where the shop assistant was still swooning over Georgio. All visited, and made all the more interesting by having watched the expert musings of these enthusiastic Siciliophiles! A joy.
