Program Notes on Ave Maria - E flat Major by Gounod :

This sheet music is based on Gounod's own original sheet music edition of this Ave Maria, first published in 1859.

Gounod entitled this arrangement for voice Mélodie religieuse adaptée au premier Prélude de J.S. Bach [Sacred melody adapted to the first Prelude of J.S. Bach].

The original version of Gounod's Ave Maria is set in the key of G Major.

This score is a transcription down to E flat Major.

The vocal range is Bb3 to G5 (C4 is middle C).

The lyrics consist of one verse in Latin.

Please note also that in order to accomodate different vocal ranges, we offer Gounod's Ave Maria in different keys :
  • G major (vocal range : D4 to B5, original key)
  • F Major (vocal range : C4 to A5)
  • E flat Major (vocal range : Bb3 to G5)
  • D flat Major (vocal range : Ab3 to F5)
  • C Major (vocal range : G3 to E5)
  • B flat Major (vocal range : F3 to D5)
These vocal ranges are based on C4 being middle C, but Gounod's Ave Maria can be sung one octave lower if necessary.

Ave Maria (Latin)

Ave Maria, gratia plena,
Dominus tecum,
benedicta tu in mulieribus,
et benedictus fructus ventris tui Iesus.
Sancta Maria Mater Dei,
ora pro nobis peccatoribus, nunc, et in hora mortis nostrae.

Hail Mary (English)

Hail Mary, full of grace,
the Lord is with thee;
blessed art thou among women,
and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary, Mother of God,
pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death.

Je Vous salue, Marie (French)

Je Vous salue, Marie pleine de grâce,
le Seigneur est avec Vous.
Vous êtes bénie entre toutes les femmes,
Et Jésus, le fruit de Vos entrailles, est béni.
Sainte Marie, Mère de Dieu,
priez pour nous pauvres pécheurs,
maintenant et à l'heure de notre mort.
