    Default Ave Maria from Mascagni's Intermezzo

    Is this piece from Cavalleria Rusticana? If not, was it composed by Mascagni?

    I'm not Catholic, but I feel moved every time I hear it.

    The music was adapted from the Cav Intermezzo - there's no "Ave Maria" in the opera.
    As far as I know it was adapted by Mascagni himself.

    Thank you. I thought that was the case, but I wanted to make sure. (...and I meant to type "adapted". )
