Ave Maria

by Franz Schubert

String arrangements by Carla Boardman Padrón



String Quartet

Includes 2 viola parts - one to accompany a soloist, the other with the melody so the piece can be played as an instrumental.  Audio samples of both are below.

Attention String Trios

The viola part can be omitted to perform the accompaniment with 2 violins and cello.  However, this configuration can ONLY be used to accompany a vocalist.

A violin-viola-cello trio can use this as an instrumental (viola has the melody).

Vocal Score

Contains the lyrics (in Latin), melody, and a piano reduction of the string parts.  That way the vocalist knows exactly what you're playing.  

Differnt keys available!  Offered here are the original B-flat plus another arrangement for medium voice that has been transposed down to G major.  Vocal ranges are described immediately below.
