“Stabat Mater opens and closes with two sung laments , then launches into a breathless torrent of words and phrases, a re-reading of the eternal feminine of Joyce’s Ulysses, which echoes the exultant/feverish swoop of the camera through a Mediterranean landscape” Jo Comino, A Directory of British Film and Video Artists ed. David Curtis, 1996

The laments are saetas’, a form of sacred Spanish song which expresses strong religious emotion directed at the suffering of the figure of Christ or the Virgin during the public processions in Holy Week. Nina Danino. ”…and the figtrees in the Alameda Gardens” Mousse Publishing, 2013
