Ave Maria (op. 4) was written in the beginning of 2005 during the first few weeks of my move to Wellington from the South Island, and was written specifically for the New Zealand Secondary Students' Choir Choral Composition Award 2005. The music is set to the traditional sacred text "Ave Maria", and is for a mixed choir (SATB) with piano accompaniment.
The piece requires a competent choir to deal with the expression detail and complex harmonies used throughout. Successful communication of the text is a must, as well as keeping the melodic lines flowing constantly.
