Ave Maria

Although there are lots of videos of this on YouTube, very few of them use exactly the arrangement we’re singing. Either they’re the all male version or they leave out some of the repeats so you don’t hear all three solos. This recording by an unidentified choir is pretty good and does the women’s parts and all three of the solos so you can really hear how things fit together.

Here’s that famous version that makes the rounds on social media every year. So what happens when Chanticleer and Cantus walk into a bar?

Voces 8 does a beautiful version with women but they don’t do any of the repeats so you only get that first solo.
