I am a composer and I recently wrote this Ave Maria setting. 2 different versions. One for soprano and piano and the other for choir SATB a cappella.
The choral texture is very light, homophonic, and the piece should be sung as someone making a sincere prayer. SATB a cappella.
Listen to the both versions on the following link, and if you are interested on having the scores, just let me know and I can send it to you within 24hs.
