Ave Maria (Bogoroditsye Dyevo)

SATB  - ca. 4 minutes

Written for my singing groups who had little or no knowledge of music and little knowledge of singing either! I realised that they would like to hear themselves sing in a Russian style but finding no approriate music around for elementary SATB I wrote this work. It is written in transliterated Russian, and English. Easy but very effective!
