This very beautiful 'Ave Maria' is perhaps less well-known than all the very famous 'Ave Maria's and especially this arrangement by David Patrick.
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)

From Wikipedia: see Ave Maria (disambiguation)
"Ave Maria" is a popular and much recorded aria composed by Vladimir Vavilov around 1970. It is a musical hoax generally misattributed to Baroque composer Giulio Caccini. Vavilov himself published and recorded it on the Melodiya label with the ascription to "Anonymous" in 1972. It is believed that the work received its ascription to Giulio Caccini after Vavilov's death, by an organist Mark Shakhin (one of its performers on the mentioned "Melodiya" longplay), who gave the "newly discovered scores" to other musicians; then in an arrangement made by the organist Oleg Yanchenko for the recording by Irina Arkhipova in 1987; then the piece came to be famous worldwide

Lots of thanks to Greg Tricker for letting me use some stunning images of his painting and stained glass icon.

Hope you like it!
