Information about Ave Maria (Mixed Voices)
Margaret Rizza's setting of Ave Maria for unaccompanied SATB choir. Ave Maria was largely inspired by Eastern Christianity's view of Mary as 'theotokos' or 'God Bearer' and is a mystical prayer that touches upon many aspects of incarnation.
Rizza began composing in 1997, her contemplative choral music being widely acclaimed not only in the UK but also abroad. When commissioned by Harry Christophers to write the choral composition for The Sixteen in 2007, Margaret embraced a new idiom in writing, that of 'Classical Contemporary'.
This piece is from Faber's Choral Signature Series which introduces a wealth of new or recently written choral music to choirs in search of fresh repertoire. The series draws in a rich diversity of living composers and includes both lighter and more challenging contemporary works, offering a thrilling array of varied styles.
