Ave Maria a 8

composer
author of text
Antiphon for the Blessed Virgin Mary

 
The eight-voice setting of Ave Maria is extended and sumptuous, for two equal SATB choirs, opening with the words of the Ave Maria chant taken from chapter 1 of St Luke’s Gospel. This setting is written in a most effective antiphonal style which alternates passages of homophonic writing, some of them in triple time, with more polyphonically conceived exchanges of great spaciousness and fullness.

from notes by Jon Dixon © 2004

L’arrangement de l’Ave Maria à huit voix est un somptueux développement du motet pour deux chœurs identiques (SATB). Il s’ouvre sur les mots de l’Ave Maria du chapitre 1 de l’Évangile de Saint Luc. Cet arrangement est écrit dans un style antiphonaire d’un grand effet. Il fait alterner les passages d’écriture homophonique, certains à trois temps, avec les échanges conçus directement en polyphonie, ce qui confère à l’ensemble une impression d’espace et d’ampleur.

Français: Marie Luccheta

Die achtstimmige Ave Maria ist eine ausgedehnte und prächtige Fassung für zwei Chöre (SATB) von wiederum gleicher Stärke. Die Motette beginnt mit den Worten des aus dem ersten Kapitel des Lukasevangeliums entnommenen Chorals Ave Maria. Diese Vertonung wurde in einem äußerst effektiven Stil komponiert, wo sich Passagen aus homophoner Faktur (einige davon im Dreiermetrum) mit eher polyphon empfundenen Dialogen von großer Weite und Fülle einander abwechseln.
