The title "Ave Maria" is usually associated with the names of Schubert, Bach, Gounod, Caccini. This may seem strange, but none of these composers ever composed songs with this title. The first track on this album is Ave Maria which usually misattributed to Giulio Caccini. It is the biggest musical hoax. Actually it was composed and first performed by Russian guitarist, lutenist and composer Vladimir Vavilov. Schubert's Ave Maria originally was titled "Ellens dritter Gesang" (Ellen's third song). The words to this song were taken from German translation of Walter Scott's poem "The Lady of the Lake". You can hear original German version of Shubert's song in the second part of track #3 of this album (the first part of this track is traditional Latin version of the song). Ave Maria attributed to Bach-Gounod is actually variation on the 1st prelude of Bach 's "Well-tempered Clavier" for violin and piano made by Ch.Gounod in 1853. Only six years later the words were added to this variation and this made this song so popular. This album also includes beautiful new age rendition of music by Pachelbel, Beethoven, Bach and more. This is the second edition of this album which includes 11tracks. The first edition and mp3 version of the album have only 10 tracks and do not include Pachelbel's Canon in D.
