Dvorak's "Stabat Mater" is a reverent, subtly dramatic work that features choir, orchestra, and vocal soli. Many moods are present, from the suspenseful feel of the opening to the sacred feel of the seventh movement. The movements are either driven by the choir or by various vocal soli, with the orchestra playing a more backing role throughout the majority of the work.
