Biebl, Franz – Ave Maria for 8-part Trombone Ensemble.
Ave Maria was composed in 1964 and is one of the most beautiful works for choral ensemble from the 20th century. It was written for a local German fireman's choir by one of his parish's singers who's profession was as a firefighter. The work languished for years but was discovered by a touring American choir who brought it back to the USA and recorded it. It became an instant hit.
The music has a heavenly feel to it and one is uplifted by its sheer beauty.
This 7-minute arrangement by Robert Kalwas is for 8-part Trombone ensemble and of moderate difficulty. All parts are in bass clef and the ranges are not extreme at all.
Ave Maria is featured on YouTube® as a "Virtual Choir International Multitrack" for a Children's Charity in South Africa.
