Franz Schubert was born in Vienna in 1797. He was involved in music at an early age, learning music theory and many different instruments including piano, violin, organ and voice. During his brief but prolific life he wrote a wide variety of music. His compositions included symphonies, piano sonatas, piano duets, operas, masses, chamber works and several hundred songs. Among the hundreds of songs, the most loved and revered is Ave Maria. Ave Maria was first published in 1826 under the German title Ellen's Gesang 111: Hymne and die Jungfrau (Ellen's Song 111: Hymn to the Virgin). The text used was taken from a novel written by Sir Walter Scott entitled "Lady of the Lake". It was then translated into German as it appeared in Schubert's song. After Schubert's death in 1828, the Latin text began being used and eventually surpassed either the use of the German or English text. "Antiphon of the Blessed Virgin" is a text which has been used in religious contexts since the beginning of Christianity. This vocal classic was originally envisioned as a devotional piece, but over time the magnificent beauty of both music and text has made this song equally popular for secular performances. Schubert's Ave Maria arranged for Low Voice is recommended for Alto or Bass ranges. We have included a separate vocal line with lyrics in Latin just above the accompaniment stave(s). The English translation is also included to explain this fabled story. This Minstrel Edition of Schubert's Ave Maria for Low Voice is exclusively distributed by Santorella Publications.
