'Howard, catching the authentic tinge of hysteria, mounts swiftly upwards in an ecstasy that burns away awareness of mere notes' (Classic CD)

Ave maris stella, S506
composer
circa 1868

Introduction
The Ave maris stella exists in three vocal and two instrumental versions, and the text is laid out above the latter. The piano version is quite elaborately coloured compared to the choral original, but the mood remains restrained.

from notes by Leslie Howard 1990
