Schubert's "Ave Maria" is the third and last cello piece played in the Royal Wedding at Windsor Castle 2018. The original version is for cello & piano (orchestra at the wedding).
The arrangement here is for cello & guitar. The key is A major instead of Bb major in the original, better suited for the guitar. However the original being a song, there exist editions in numerous keys including 2 editions for cello & piano by Schubert's contemporaries Georg Goltermann (C major) and David Popper (G major). A-major is comfortable and well sounding on the guitar and closer to the original key than the other cello transcriptions.
Schubert's Ave Maria is an all time favourite for voice and numerous instruments.
