Description

The familiar and beloved Ave Maria was originally written as part of Franz Schubert's setting of Sir Walter Scott's narrative poem, The Lady of the Lake. Over the course of time, the German translation from Schubert's setting has been replaced by the traditional Latin prayer so often that the song has become known primarily as Ave Maria. This lyrical melody, stirring in its simplicity, is complemented by a murmuring accompaniment that imitates a harp, a feature that Thomas Doss fully does justice to in this arrangement. Dur: 6:25
