Hail Mary, full of grace,
The Lord is with thee.
Blessed art thou among women
And blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus+
Pray for us sinners,
Now and at the hour of our death
Amen

I have to say, I prefer Schubert's original - in German with piano accompaniment. It doesn't need anything else, other than a lovely voice - like Barbara Bonney's.

Well, personally I can do without the voice altogether.

Franz Liszt made transcriptions of many of Schubert's songs for solo piano, including Ave Maria. Here's a sublime performance by Valerie Tryon.

Well, I was grubbing around Youtube a little while ago and came across this. It reminded me of this thread from "the early days" :D

I like it.

EEK! ... I "heard" this (my mother's voice - bellowing out from the kitchen) ... and just for one little nano-second, I thought uh-oh ... I'm in trouble - again ... What've I done now? Image Image

Sorry, Rainy, but that is ghastly. Sickly, syrupy, tasteless and poorly sung - I'm for Binder's clip.

Are we in an "Ave Maria" mode? :D Not, I expect. I thought it would be easy to find a decent version of the Bach/Gounod version on Youtube. Well, it bloody wasn't. This is simple and attractive, imo. Please ignore the vomit-inducing images.

Yes, I did bypass both Callas and Aled Jones.

It is amazing what you come across on Youtube. The Big Tune in the Intermezzo to Cavaleria Rusticana is quite well-known, but I didn't realise Mascagni used it to set the words of Ave Maria. This version is quite good.

Lovely singing - beautifully controlled and understated and with a fabulous tone.

Very nice indeed. Like Catholic priests I'm partial to a good treble. Pity his voice cracks a bit on the big note. I'm probably being a bit pickey.

Yes I agree with you that you are being "picky"--which is easy to do, easier, that is, than spending years
training to be a singer and giving a splendid performance like Marusia Lowese in that Andre Rieu concert.

Mirusia's voice in this piece is very pleasant, but for me nothing more. And it is the slushy arrangement I find unattractive and unnecessary.

Now listen to the great Maria Callas.............oh, hang on.
