About Ave Maria By Schubert:
This is a piano sheet music of “Ave Maria” by Austrian composer, Franz Schubert from classical/romantic era. The real title of this piece is “Ellens dritter Gesang,” “Ellens Gesang III,” or in English, “Ellen’s Third Song.” It is from his Op. 52 work written for the poem, The Lady of the Lake. Initially, it was written for organ and voice by Schubert.
Tune Of The Day: Ave Maria
Still as popular as ever for wedding services, this piece is often referred to as Schubert’s Ave Maria, but it was originally composed as a setting of a song from Walter Scott’s popular epic poem The Lady of the Lake. In Scott’s poem the character Ellen Douglas, the Lady of the Lake has gone with her father to hide in the Goblin’s cave nearby to avoid drawing the vengeance of the King on their host, the Clan-Alpine chieftain Roderick Dhu, who has been affording them shelter since the King had exiled them. She sings a prayer addressed to the Virgin Mary, calling upon her for help. Ellen is overheard by Roderick Dhu who is higher on the mountain, raising the clan for war.
The opening words and refrain of Ellen’s song, namely Ave Maria , may have led to the idea of adapting Schubert’s melody as a setting for the full text of the traditional Roman Catholic prayer Ave Maria. The Latin version of the Ave Maria is now so frequently used with Schubert’s melody, that it has led to the misconception that he originally wrote the melody as a setting for the Ave Maria.

|I first got to download and play Gounod’s version but since having heard a couple times Schubert’s rendition, I got very interested in finding it so I can download and play it…. It’s a matter of taste, I guess… but I kind of prefer the rhythm of Schubert’s which is less heavy and feels more uplifting.|
