Summary/Abstract: The study is a historical overview of the perception of the sign Christian image of the grieving mother in Ukrainian musical culture from Baroque to Present. Methodology. The research methodology is a combination of historical, textual, music-liturgical methods that allow considering the most important text-music examples, linked with the image of the most important musical samples associated with the image of the mournful Virgin in the historical dynamics and in the light of denominational diversity of the Ukrainian music culture. Scientific Novelty. The scientific novelty of the research consists in the fact that the authors are the first who have reviewed the implementation of artistic image of grieving mother in the national musical culture, represented including the famous medieval text «Stabat mater». Conclusions. In the Ukrainian extraliturgical and paraliturgical sacred song traditions, the image of the Virgin mournful and traditional genre of its implementation (planctus) is not widespread. The image of grieving mother is not interpreted according to the classic Catholic medieval text «Stabat mater» whereas according to the paraliturgical song poetry of Central European countries and Orthodox church tradition, represented by Simeon Logothetis canon. The canonical text «Stabat mater» acquires relevance in the late 20th century. Its implementation is related to the Postmodern trends of contemporary culture and ranges from radical rethinking and deconstruction of the Christian tradition (G. Nemirovsky) to continuation and creative rethinking of the best achievements of world culture (A. Rodin).
