Ave Maria was written by FranzSchubert in 1825 as the sixth song in his song cycle based on Walter Scott’s poem TheLady of the Lake. It is perhaps the best known of all his melodies,adapted for piano by Franz Liszt,and for orchestra many times since. It is often sung with the Latin lyrics ofthe Catholic hymn of the same name and has been heard everywhere from theDisney movie Fantasia to the funeral of J.F.Kennedy. This version is arranged as a solo for Viola with Piano. The pdf file contains boththe piano accompaniment and the separate solo part.

Musicians at an intermediate level and above willfind this ideal for formal and informal performances. Both parts play themelody. The overall performance time is around four and a half minutes.
