Excerpt from The Stabat Mater Speciosa and the Stabat Mater Dolorosa
I here present to the reader, in the original Latin and in English translations preserving the measure of the Latin, the two most tender hymns of the Roman Church, the Stabat Mater Speciosa and the Stabat Mater Dolorosa, or, as they are frequently called, the Mater Speciosa and the Mater Dolorosa. They are closely related: in metrical structure they are alike, and much of the language is the same in both. But though they thus resemble each other in external features, they differ in spirit and aim. The first is a paean, the second a dirge; the first is adapted to Christmas, the second to Good Friday; the first contemplates the cradle of Christ, the second His cross.
