Rossini's "Stabat mater is often said to be operatic." Philip Gossett in Grove Music Online. The first version was first performed in Madrid in 1833; a revised second version was first performed in Paris in 1842.

Horne had a voice of extraordinary range, rich and tangy in timbre, with a stentorian chest register and an exciting top... In concert she once achieved the feat of singing in a single programme Rossini arias and Brünnhilde’s Immolation Scene, proof of her exceptional versatility. Throughout her lengthy career she was an admired recitalist, singing lieder, mélodies, Spanish and American songs with equal aplomb." Alan Blyth in Grove Music Online. Item #32023
