In my memory there is an “Ave Maria” that I have heard sung by a treble choir, but I can’t for the life of me find this specific one. It is an arrangement where the only lyrics in the piece are Ave Maria, and it was primarily in mixed meter.
If my memory serves me correctly, it’s in a sort of 3+2+2+2 type meter, and the choir sings “Ave Maria, Ave, Ave, Ave” within that…cluster-y chords if I remember correctly. I remember whoever the director was saying that the arrangement was supposed to represent the “wonder of Jesus’s birth” or something like that…??
I feel like it was an honor choir that sang it, but I truly cannot remember it.
Hoping the ChoralNet hive can help me figure out which exact piece this is?
Maybe not Jesus’s birth…haha.
You’re think of David MacIntyre’s Ave Maria! 🙂
