Ave Maria


Sometimes , performances speak for themselves.

So it is with this video of the stunning German pop artist, Helene Fischer, whose voice , when applied to Franz Schubert’s Ave Maria, is a rare tribute by anyone in the entertainment community, to the waning traditions of European Christianity.

Though she is not an operatic singer, her tone and clarity are striking, which helps to make this gorgeous liturgical music more  accessable to this public audience.

Such a lovely and talented lady.

    While looking for the obesity editorial, I came across this gem. You provided me with my first ever experience of hearing Schubert’s Ave Maria sung in German!! and thanks to the clarity of her diction, I was able to understand every word.
