Hail, Mother Mary composed by Riley
Written for 3 C flutes or 2 C flutes with Alto flute
Includes score and parts
Based on Giulio Caccini's Ave Maria, who was a composer at the end of the 16th century. Elaborating on the forward-looking harmonies of Caccini, this arrangement allows an unobstrusive crossover into the gospel music idioms. The score includes chord symbols so that other instruments might join the flutes to form a rhythm section.
