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.
Ave Maria by Gounod is one of many musical numbers that Palm Strings has learnt in order to provide the ideal live music at the various weddings, birthday parties, functions and even funerals at which it plays. Customers frequently place requests with us which we learn free of charge in order to provide the right music for their occasion.
