Ave Maria (Klafsky lIb, 30) was completed by Haydn on November 26, 1784. The text is a Gradual, liturgically used for the Rorate Coeli Mass on the fourth Sunday in Advent, and is translated as: Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with you. You are blessed among women. Alleluia.

This edition is based upon the autograph score, preserved in the music archive of theBayerische Staatsbibliothek in Munich: Mus. Ms. 428. The score is laid out over six pages, eight staves per page, in the following order: Violin 1, Violin 2, Soprano, Alto, Tenor, Bass, Continuo, two Trumpets. The heading at the top of the first page of the score reads: Graduale in Missa:Rorate di G. Mich: Haydn.

The present edition adheres closely to the above mentioned source, noting editorialmarkings in parentheses. Voice parts, where notated in moveable clefs, were rewritten intreble clef; phrase markings in the voice parts were added where two or more notes occurred for a single syllable of text (only those phrase markings given by the composer in the instrumental parts appear in this edition); textual underlay, given generally only in the soprano and tenor parts, were added to the alto and bass parts.

This editor is indebted to Dr. Hartmut Schaefer and the Bayerische Staatsbibliothekin Munich for allowing me to examine the autograph score, supplying me with microfilm of the score, and for granting pennission to publish this modem performing edition.
