J.S. Bach-Gounod: Ave Maria

This famous piece consists of a melody (and harmony part) written by the French Romantic composer Charles Gounod superimposed over J.S. Bach's Prelude No. 1 in C major, from Book I of The Well-Tempered Clavier, written 137 years earlier. Birchwood's version repeats the piece a second time, switching the music in the violin parts so that each violinist has an opportunity to perform Gounod's beautiful melody.

I love your wide-ranging, interesting and very playable arrangements. Please keep doing what you're doing! . . .
