    Ave Maria

    Schubert composed Ave Maria in 1825, and in this modern setting for brass band, the tune is realised in grand and epic proportions. Opening as a flugel solo, with accompanying chords and an absolutely delicious rolling descending scale pattern on muted cornets, your audience has no idea this arrangement of Ave Maria is about to be given some kick into the 21st Century.Slightly cinematic, but always musical, Schubert's classic melody is fit for bands with a big broad sound, and a soprano player who is ready for action.

    Ave Maria

    Johann Sebastian Bach (1685 - 1750) was a German composer and musician of the Baroque period. Bach's compositions include the Brandenburg Concertos, the Goldberg Variations, the Mass in B minor, two Passions, and over three hundred cantatas of which approximately two hundred survive. His music is revered for its technical command, artistic beauty, and intellectual depth. Bach's abilities as an organist were highly respected during his lifetime, although he was not widely recognised as a great composer until a revival of interest in and performances of his music in the first half of the 19th century. He is now generally regarded as one of the greatest composers of all time.Charles-Francois Gounod (1818 - 1893) was a French composer, best known for his Grand Operas, most famously 'Faust', written in 1859 and his 'St Cecilia Mass' written in 1854. However possibly his most performed work is his arrangement of the latin text Ave Maria based on a work by Bach.You can listen to a computer realisation of the score while following the music below:

    Ave Maria - Johann Sebastian Bach, Charles Gounod - Ray Farr

    There have been several settings of this Roman Catholic prayer to music, with the Bach/Gounod version being the most famous. It consists of the first prelude of Bach's The Well-Tempered Clavier plus a melody that Gounod wrote over this. Gounod himself called the piece 'Meditation', and it was only later that the words of Ave Maria were fitted. This reflective arrangement for Cornet and Brass Band is by one of our most gifted arrangers, Ray Farr.

    Ave Maria

    Franz Schubert wrote his Ave Maria in 1825. It is the third of three song settings from Sir Walter Scott’s poem The Lady of the Lake , iself written in 1810. It’s proper title is Ellen’s Song , named after the heroine of Scott’s poem, Ellen Douglas. It has been suggested that the opening two words of the original song may have led to the idea of it being arranged for the full text of the Roman Catholic Prayer. It is now most often performed in this latter adaptation, thus leading to the misconception that it was originally set with the prayer in mind. Even in Schubert’s own brief lifetime, he was only thirty-one when he died, this song was considered a masterpiece. It acquired greater popularity when it was used in the 1940 Walt Disney film Fantasia where its beauty and simplicity offered calm and respite following the tempestuous strains of Mussorgsky’s A Night on Bare Mountain .

    Ave Verum Corpus - W.A. Mozart - Len Jenkins

    "Ave Verum Corpus" is a short religious piece (motet) K. 618, composed by Mozart in 1791 shortly before his death, and is a setting of the 14th century Eucharistic hymn in Latin. He wrote it for a friend Anton Stoll, who was the musical coordinator in the parish of Baden bei Wien, near Vienna. Mozart composed the motet whilst in the middle of writing his opera The Magic Flute and while visiting his wife Constanze, who was pregnant with their sixth child and staying in a spa near Baden. It is only forty-six bars long and was originally scored for SATB choir, string instruments, and organ. Mozart's manuscript contains minimal directions, so we hope you will enjoy our interpretation and arrangement for brass quintet and optional Glockenspiel.
