Ave Maria I
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
The E major Ave Maria I is Dubra’s first piece in Latin and dates from 1989, just before the end of the Soviet occupation. The motet is a beautiful and understated expression of joy with the main theme always resolving upwards into the tonic key of E. According to the eighteenth-century poet and musician Christian Schubart, in his Ideen zu einer Aesthetik der Tonkunst, ‘full delight lies in E major’. The repetition in this prayer can be seen as a form of emotional development which aspires to spiritual calmness and oneness with God.
