Information about the piece
Ave Maria was composed by the famous Austrian composer, Franz Schubert, in 1825. It is recognized globally as one of Schubert's most beautiful creations.
Originally, the song was not intended as a setting for the full Roman Catholic prayer. It was initially composed as part of Schubert's Opus 52, a collection of seven songs inspired by Walter Scott's epic poem The Lady of the Lake. The song was actually a musical setting for another prayer, called Ellens dritter Gesang (Ellen's Third Song).
The structure of the song is ABA. Schubert's harmonic richness shines through as he uses chromaticism and other harmony techniques to create a beautifully emotional trajectory.
