Schubert, Franz - Ave Maria

Post by lucy » Thu Feb 07, 2013 7:44 pm

Hi All

According to Wikipedia, this piece is actually "Ellen's Third Song" and is one of a set of seven songs by Schubert, in a setting of Walter Scott's poem The Lady of the Lake. However, it has been recorded by many singers under the title Ave Maria, (the poem begins with these words), so I've opted to use that title, as it is more well known. The catalogue number of the original song is D.839, Op.52, No.6.

Hope you like it.

Constructive criticism/comments appreciated.

Thanks.

Lovely, Lucy! I love your tone and calmness. My only comment is just a detail: at 0:30 you play a glissando/slide. Is there an alternative fingering possible? If not, can you play it less 'slidy'? I love the second half of your recording: perfect balance between the melody line and accompaniment. :bravo: :merci: :bye:

Thanks for your kind comments Erik, nok and Paolo. :) Glad you all found it peaceful - that is how I think this piece should be.

It's quite easy to play that bit without the slide. I just put it in for effect, but if you don't think it sounds good, I'll change it! Thanks. :bye:

Lovely and very prayerful - a great reflection piece. If it is a non-copyrighted score, I'd love it too, perhaps to master enough to play in our church. Thanks.

Very nicely done - one of my all time favorite songs. There are a few places where it feels like the tempo is a bit rushed, but not terribly. I would also be interested in the score if it is available.

Thanks for sharing.
