General Information

Title: Ave Maria
Composer: Giuseppe Verdi

Number of voices: 4vv   Voicing: SATB
Genre: SacredMotet

Language: Latin
Instruments: A cappella

Published: 1898

Description (accompanying the edition by Marco Lucchetti): This Ave Maria was almost certainly written in 1898 as a reply to a sort of harmonic ridde proposed by Adolfo Crescentini on the “Gazzetta Musicale di Milano”. Verdi always forbid the public execution of the work, regarding it as the mere solution of a musical rebus.

Scala enigmatica armonizzata a quattro voci

Arrigo Boito obtained from Verdi the permission about publishing this piece with other three. In this way is born the “Quattro pezzi sacri” that contains Ave Maria, Stabat Mater, Laudi alla Vergine Maria and Te Deum. But after some time Verdi decided to put out his Ava Maria from the opera, so the title changed in “Tre pezzi sacri”.
