Ave Maria (SATB, a cappella) – a new setting – free
Date: November 21, 2013
Language: Latin. Standard of difficulty: fairly easy. Duration: circa 1½ minutes. No divisi. No extreme ranges. One page. Mildly modern – won't frighten the horses!
I wrote this with the aim of presenting the prayer with as much clarity as possible. To that end, I've set the text phrase by phrase rather than as deconstructed fragments.
Here's a multitrack recording by Matthew Curtis.
To date, this has only been sung here in Australia. Please email me for a PDF of the score – this may be used for performances free of charge.
