Ave Maria

author of text
Antiphon for the Blessed Virgin Mary

Lauridsen’s Ave Maria, composed in 1997, is a texturally rich, eight-part setting of the most beloved of Marian antiphons. This lovely Ave Maria recalls the sumptuous polychoral music of Gabrieli as well as the rich textures of Brahms’s music for unaccompanied chorus.

L’Ave Maria (1997) est une mise en musique à huit parties, à la texture riche, de la mieux aimée des antiennes mariales. Cette charmante pièce rappelle la somptueuse musique polychorale de Gabrieli et les luxuriantes textures de la musique de Brahms pour chœur sans accompagnement.

Lauridsens Ave Maria, entstanden im Jahre 1997, ist eine achtstimmige, strukturell vielfältige Vertonung der beliebten Marianischen Antiphon. Dieses wunderschöne Ave Maria erinnert sowohl an die prächtigen mehrchörigen Werke Gabrielis als auch an die üppigen Strukturen von Brahms’ Musik für Chor a cappella.
