Houston Chamber Choir Presents "Ave Maria – Music of Devotion to Our Lady"
Jeff Grass Photography
Mary’s journey from humble maiden to grieving mother has inspired composers throughout the centuries. The season unfolds with her story told masterfully in song from the triple-choir setting of the Franciscan poem, Stabat Mater by Renaissance composer Felice Anerio, the transcendent mysticism of Avro Pärt’s recent setting of the Magnificat, and John Taverner’s Song to the Mother of God. The beloved Ave Maria by Franz Schubert brings the concert and Mary’s story to a poignant close.
