Ave Maria (SATB, organ) (2015)

 Composed March 27th-April 1st 2015. Dedicated to Jane Champion.

Duration: c. 2′ 30″

Programme note by the composer:

In this setting of the Ave Maria I have opted for a simple, yet mildly dissonant harmonic style. The general dynamic is very quiet apart from the climax ‘ora pro nobis’ (‘pray for us sinners’), which is a dissonant and impassioned plea to the Mother of God.
