I recently discovered Pergolesi's Stabat Mater. I recently bought the DG/Decca All Baroque box and it had the Kirkby/Bowman version with Hogwood. I found the music deeply moving and so have started to explore other recordings. I got the Elin Thomas/Robin Blaze version on Channel classics on SACD. I like both these recordings- there is a purity in their singing (I think sounding operatic in this recording is inappropriate). I would be happy to hear about other recordings worth exploring. For example, how is the Scholl/Bonney version etc.?
