6. Pergolesi: Stabat Mater
'Among my discoveries I particularly love the music of Giovanni Batista Pergolesi,' says Katherine. Pergolesi was an important early composer of operas and choral music who tragically only lived to the age of 26. He wrote his sublime Stabat Mater in the last few weeks of his life in 1736 while he lay dying of tuberculosis in a Franciscan monastery.'
