It is the result of a long research work which has gathered more than thirty musical compositions titled “Ave Maria” for voice and organ of outstanding artistic, musical and spiritual value, written from the XVIII century to our days. The recording was made with the accompaniment of the organ Opus 419 built for the Basilica “Colle Don Bosco” (Asti) by Fratelli Pinchi Ars Organo srl.
The concerts are organized in collaboration with the cultural association “Concetto Armonico” whose honorary associate is Daniela Dessì.
