The Poet-Composer Prays
Peter Cornelius: Ave Maria
- Sheet music for voice -
The composer Peter Cornelius from Mainz often called himself a 'poet-composer': It is no wonder therefore that he had devoted himself particularly to the composition of songs.
The newly edited 'Ave Maria' was found among the composer's unpublished works.
It is a simple, chordally accompanied song which is quite suitable for liturgical purposes. The piano part may be replaced by an organ.
