Based on the plainchant, Ave Maria was written last April and May at UT Austin. Not only is the opening of the piece based melodically on the chant, but it is also harmonically influenced by it. The opening sonority of the piece is built on each consecutive note of the plainchant incipit first introduced by the tenor. When the piece is not based on the chant itself it is based on the inversion (or mirroring) of sections of the chant. The piece seeks to capture the sacredness and transcendental result of the prayer that is recited over 50 times while praying the Holy Rosary to the Blessed Mother Mary.
