Boccherini’s vocal works are generally of lesser interest than his remarkable prolificacy and genius in the production of chamber and orchestral music, but the original 1781 version of his Stabat mater stands well above the routine and deserves its more prominent place in the repertoire. Taking much example from Pergolesi, the generous vocal writing and amiable string accompani- ment lend this work a warmth that is well rewarded by Vignudelli’s deftly judged performance. She carries the whole work through well.
