Ferko discusses how he composed his Stabat Mater

Frank Ferko is in town for a performance of his Stabat Mater by Choral Arts. He participated in a Meet the Composer last night at Fare Start. I live blogged the Q&A (you can find the transcript by clicking on the Live Blog page) and at the beginning of the question period I took this short video of Ferko talking about what went into each stanza, why he skipped the second, and why the stanzas toward the end are shorter.  If your Saturday evening is empty, consider coming to St. James Cathedral at 8 pm to hear Choral Arts’ performance.
