In vast halls adjoining the theatres stood faro- tables and rouge-et-noir, and, the average Italian being a born gambler, the bank would usually show a more than handsome profit and so turn over enormous sums to swell the funds of the theatre. 1 Gaming played a particularly vital role in the history of la Scala, which, situated as it is in a city with a damp winter climate, soon grew to be a general meeting-place for the whole town.

This section of the mass concludes with another brilliant fugue for the chorus, at the words �Et vitam venturi saeculi, Amen.� There follows an extended piano solo, leading to a lyrical Sanctus and Benedictus, and the work ends with a moving Agnus Dei for the alto soloist and chorus. But life costs nothing in Pesaro, and so this family, for all its dependance upon so uncertain a trade, knew no sadness, still less worried about the future.

Stradella and his mistress were not slow to grasp the significance of this advice; and so, that very same evening, they chartered a ship, set sail down the Tiber, journeyed by sea as far as Spezzia, and thence made their way to Turin by the most unlikely roads.

Six movements of his Stabat Mater were written in 1832 and the rest in 1839, the year of his father`s death.
