Ave Maria

composer
1992
author of text

 
In the Western Christian tradition there is no shortage of settings of the Angelic Salutation or Ave Maria, with the versions by Bach-Gounod and Schubert leading the field in terms of popularity. Undaunted, one of Poland’s younger generation of composers, Paweł Łukaszewski (born 1968) has produced an affecting and genuinely devotional setting of the Marian prayer. Like his older compatriot, Penderecki, Łukaszewski composes in a largely tonal style shot through with unexpected but appropriate effects. His style marks him out as both a thoroughly modern composer of sacred music and a worthy inheritor of an ancient tradition.
