Ave Maria

Choir Sacred Opt. Flute (SATB choir)
Edited by and arr. Patrick M. Liebergen. Choral Octavo; Masterworks. Choral Designs. Baroque; Masterwork Arrangement; Renaissance; Sacred. Choral Octavo. 12 pages. Published by Alfred Music (AP.20142).

Item Number: AP.20142

Music attributed to Giulio Caccini.

This haunting melody has been recorded by everyone from Charlotte Church to Andrea Bocelli and no wonder: it's gorgeous. And the harmonies are lush, and unexpected for a 16th century piece. The voice writing is straightforward, with no surprises; Patrick Liebergen lets the beautiful melody and harmonies speak for themselves. The piano accompaniment is supportive and an optional flute part is included. The Ave Maria text makes it appropriate for school or church use, year round.
Inst. Parts Available (choral).

    It's a pretty simple piece, but it sounds a lot more difficult than it is. Audiences love a good Ave Maria.

    This little known piece by Caccini (most known for his song "Amarilli, mia bella") has been recorded recently by several leading singers including Sumi Jo. It is a beautiful and haunting melody. This arrangement by Patrick Liebergen is a very effective arrangement for choir that can easily be sung by...

    a small church choir or beginning level school choir. It is an excellent piece for developing beauty of tone, pure vowels sounds, and singing long phrases. The added flute part makes it especially effective. It is a piece that both your choir and your audiences will love.

    Our 10 person group performed this at our annual Christmas concert, and although it was one of the easier pieces to learn as well as sing, it was no doubt one of the favorites. It only goes to prove that most people, although impressed by the more intricate compositions, truly...

    are touched by the sweeter, simpler melodies. We invited a clarinetist to perform the optional flute part, and it added a lusher quality to the piece. A winner! The Heart and Soul Singers
