The conversation between Mary and Jesus during his crucifixion provides the inspiration for this sacred work written by Italian composer Giovanni Battista Pergolesi in 1736, the last year of his life. Welsh soprano Angharad Gruffydd Jones joins American countertenor Lawrence Zazzo before the intimate Cambridge Ensemble, composed of six instrumentalists and conducted by director and organist Timothy Brown.
