Samizdata quote of the day

Listening to Pergolesi’s Stabat Mater is like drinking champagne with God.

- HC Robbins Landon

Quoted on BBC Radio 3 today, by music scholar Lionel Sawkins, in a programme about Le Concert Spirituel, which seems to have been an eighteenth century French version of the Proms. Pergolesi’s Stabat Mater was the single most popular piece played at these concerts.
