Program Notes on Ave Maria - Meditation by Gounod :

This sheet music is the instrumental version of Gounod's Ave Maria.

Our edition is based on Gounod's original 1853 instrumental version.

Gounod entitled this instrumental version Méditation sur le 1er Prélude de piano de J.S. Bach [Meditation on the first Piano Prelude by J.S. Bach].

It is only in 1859 that Gounod adapted this Méditation to become his famous Ave Maria.

Gounod's original instrumental version was set for violin and piano in the key of C Major.

This score is a transcription for trumpet in B flat and piano.

It is set in the key of F Major.

The trumpet part is intended for intermediate-level trumpeters.

Please note that in Gounod's original edition, the diminuendo and piano in measures 28 and 29 are replaced by a sempre crescendo upon playing the piece for the second time.

Also, in measure 36 of the trumpet part, we have used the notes from the 1859 version for voice and piano

This is due to the fact that the notes of the 1853 Méditation version do not suit well the range of the trumpet in B flat.
