Ave Maria – Sexton

CMP 519 08 118

Much like Sexton’s sublime setting of Ubi Caritas, this piece creates choral beauty through the simplest of means. Triadic chords in the lower parts anchor the harmony above which the melody laps and flows in the Soprano line. In simple ABA form, the middle section provides contrast, with more intensity and dynamic range than the opening. A series of sequences brings the section to a triumphal end on the word ‘Jesu’ before the music recedes and returns to the motifs of the opening, the piece ending with a coda of quiet strength and warmth. A fantastic choice for an offertory or communion reflection or within a concert programme.
