***Ave Maria by Gomez, Kang***

        Many composers have written "Ave Maria" in honor of the Blessed Mother. I have listed a number of them under Good Websites, Blogs, Videos . . . in the right sidebar of the blog page. Schubert's "Ave Maria" is probably best known and a classic, but today the magnificent version by William Gomez rivals that one. My favorite recording has been the one sung by Elina Garanca which you'll find in the sidebar list. Today I came across this version by a Korean mezzo soprano. She may not be as famous as Garanca, but her voice is just sublime and sings most beautifully. I think you'll be moved by her performance.
