Ave Maria … virgo serena
author of text

Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
The ability to move from undemonstrative imitative writing to chords is on display in the last section of the substantial setting of Ave Maria … virgo serena, the chords coming where the name ‘Maria’ is invoked. Mouton underlines the gentleness of this idea by using a slow triple-time for Mary, immediately returning to duple for the remainder of the text.
