Ave Maria - 4

This is an Ave Maria I had never heard before, composed by Giulio Cacinni who died in Florence in 1618. The only lyrics for the entire piece are the two words of the title, repeated over and over again. The vocalist here is 20 year old Hayley Westenra of New Zealand.

I hope you're enjoying this series of posts on different performances and versions of the prayer, Ave Maria. Most of all I hope you'll join us for the concert Chosen From All Women on Sunday night, September 9 at 7:30 p.m., following Evening Prayer at 7:00 p.m. at Holy Family Parish in Concord. The concert will be presented by Lauren Sprague (soprano) and Carol Messina (piano).

For more information on the concert see my first post on this topic, and scroll down to find the first 3 renditions of the Ave Maria.
