Translated by Shaun Whiteside from Scarpa's 2008 Italian original, "Stabat Mater" is set in a Venetian orphanage for girls run by nuns in what would have been around the 1700s.

Translated by Shaun Whiteside from Scarpa's 2008 Italian original, "Stabat Mater" is set in a Venetian orphanage for girls run by nuns in what would have been around the 1700s. The girls at the "Ospedale" are trained as musicians and singers who play from a hidden gallery in the adjoining church for the patrons of the Instituto della Pietà. And yet, rather like the audience to the performances, the reader only gets tantalising glimpses of the orphans and the narrative thread in Cecilia's story.

Tiziano Scarpa won Italy's 2009 Strega prize with this highly unusual tale of a young orphaned novice, Cecilia . Birth is a dirty matter as well as a beautiful one, and they exist side by side until the arrival of a new music master.

Tiziano Scarpa won Italy's 2009 Strega prize with this highly unusual tale of a young orphaned novice, Cecilia, who, along with some of 17th-century Venice's other orphaned and abandoned girls, earns her keep in the convent by playing violin in the nuns' orchestra.

Isobel Montgomery looks at Tiziano Scarpa's Stabat Mater. Stabat Mater is old-school fairytale rather than modern-day whimsy, with Scarpa's narrative rooted in earthy images that give Venice, the convent and the music a raw reality.
