    I love Schubert's Ave Maria. I was back home last week and saw a program for my parents' wedding and saw that someone had sang it there (surely a common choice at Catholic weddings ), and I've been listening to it a lot since. Can't say I'm familiar with many others.

    Anyone into others of Schubert's sacred music? He wrote a lot, but I have not heard much. And I understand this Ave Maria was not written as a sacred song, per se, but it kind of ended up that way due to the subject matter.

    I've got quite a bit of it. For the choral works with orchestra I would say Wolfgang Sawallisch is the way to go. You are right about Ave Maria - it was originally called Ellens Gesang III and published as part of cycle based around a poem by Sir Walter Scott.
    '...a violator of his word, a libertine over head and ears in debt and disgrace, a despiser of domestic ties, the companion of gamblers and demireps, a man who has just closed half a century without a single claim on the gratitude of his country or the respect of posterity...' - Leigh Hunt on the Prince Regent (later George IV).
