About the piece: Avemaría is a composition for mixed choir a capella, dedicated to my aunt Soraida. Some people do not see the beauty in what they have been given, in all the small things: health, having a family, sharing one’s love. Some people see the beauty from afar and long to make it theirs. For years, having children was a dream my aunt fought for, that is why I see her as an example of never-ending faith and strength. This work is about raising up and never stopping to believe. Darkness is necessary to make the light brighter. Knowing how important it was for her to become a mother, there is no text with a more sincere meaning, specially for all of us who believe in the role of Mary the Virgin as the mother of God.

Language: Spanish

Text: Dios te salve, María, llena eres de gracia, el Señor es contigo; bendita eres entre todas las mujeres, y bendito es el fruto de tu vientre, Jesús. Santa María, Madre de Dios, ruega por nosotros ahora y en la hora de nuestra muerte. Amén.
