Ave Maria

Bach / Gounod

Ave Maria is a popular setting of the Latin text Ave Maria, originally published in 1853

as M̩editation sur le Premier Pr̩lude de Piano de S. Bach.

The piece consists of a melody by the French Romantic composer Charles Gounod especially designed to be superimposed over the Prelude No. 1 in C major, BWV 846, from Book I of J.S. Bach's The Well-Tempered Clavier, written 137 years earlier.
