In 1892 at the height of his fame, Dvorak came to America to be the Music Director of the National Conservatory in New York. During his three-year stay in America, this great Czech composer wrote a symphony he titled “From the New World.” This is one of the most popular of all symphonies and is played by orchestras around the world
Dvorak loved God, but his faith was tested when two of his children died. During this sorrowful time he wrote a lovely “Stabat Mater” in honor of the Virgin Mary, the Queen of Sorrows. Reading this story can encourage us to follow in the footsteps of Antonin Dvorak, who overcame great sorrow and used his talents to bring glory to God.
