Love is a beautiful thing. It manifests itself in more forms than one. Where there is happiness, it is Love, where there is sorrow, it is Love. Even when it seems hopeless, Love is still somewhere. Love is so great, it inspires artists to live, create beautiful art, music and literature.
The singing of Stabat Mater is traditionally associated with the Catholic celebration of Lent. It tells the sorrow Mary felt at the several stations of the cross. This concert however is anything but sorrow. It instead celebrates a mother’s love for her child. Included in this unique program is a reading from late Singaporean poet Arthur Yap’s Singlish poem on two Singaporean mothers’ love for their children.
