Another Ave Maria. From the 15 hundreds? or the 19 hundreds?!

Ave Maria sung by Inessa Galante


This aria is commonly attributed to the wonderful Baroque composer Giulio Caccini (1551–1618). (highly doubtful) Also attributed to Vladimir Vavilov (1925–1973) (more likely)

Google to get to the bottom of it. Who did compose this?

    Schmaltz — excessive sentimentality. Dripping lard is the German word says my computer dictionary. I shouldn’t like it, but I do. Reminds me of Ennio Marricone, Italian famous for scores to spaghetti westerns, his oboe piece called Gabriel’s Oboe. This Vavilov piece must be attached to a larger piece of music. “Take an Ave Maria and call me in the morning.” my advice for everything.
