Program Notes

Biebl's setting of Ave Maria exploits the richly sonorous possibilities of double-chorus writing for men's voices. The familiar Ave Maria antiphon is sung by four-part choir, answered by a three-part group of soloists. This forms a refrain separating the three chanted versicles of the Angelus, a devotional text commemorating the Incarnation, resulting in a satisfying blend of medieval melodic sound and warm, multi-voiced choral harmonies.
