Ave Maria

author of text
Antiphon for the Blessed Virgin Mary

The words of the Ave Maria are those of the Angel Gabriel in St Luke’s gospel as he brings Mary the news that she will be the mother of Christ, and there are innumerable musical settings. The present one, written in 2006, was dedicated to Lydia Smallwood, whose premature death in that year deprived the Cambridge musical community of one of its best-loved and most valued members.
