This setting of Ave Maria was composed for soprano, Jocelyn Claire Thomas. Outside of her busy performing schedule, Jocelyn sings at The Episcopal Parish of St. John the Baptist in Portland Oregon as part of its Musical Artists in Residence program. My goal was to create a setting that follows the feel of the text with a strong, arching melody supported by a harmonic progression that emanates both warmth and heroism. The optional choir part comes in at the end in unison followed by the word "Amen", voiced as desired. Enjoy!

"Staggeringly brilliant...Thomas' ethereal soprano causing a tear or two more than once...truly magic in the air." –Jared Rasic, from The Source

Ave Maria, gratia plena,
Dominus tecum.
Benedicta tu in mulieribus,
et benedictus fructus ventris tui, Jesus.
Sancta Maria, Mater Dei,
ora pro nobis peccatoribus,
nunc et in hora mortis nostrae.
