Irene Grant-Jones sings Gounod's Ave Maria in English, accompanied by Tim Grant-Jones.

Irene is an Adjudicator for the National and International Federation of Music Festivals.
Ave Maria is track 5 from her album 'Handle with Care'. Irene has sung this song many times at church weddings.Her love of words, poetry and her own personal poetry writing adds a third dimension to the expressive quality she brings to Ave Maria.
The lyrics refer to God the Father, and God the Son and prayers for children everywhere in the world.
This song is dedicated to my family and friends especially those I grew up with during my time in the RHYL HIGH SCHOOL, North Wales. Memories will always be precious when remembering the times we competed in the National Eisteddfod and also the Llangollen International Eisteddfod. Year after year our music teachers made it a priority for us to be there as a choir and as soloists. The rising phrases within this song remind me of the beautiful countryside I had so much pleasure in seeing. I would like to thank my English teachers for nurturing the love of words which I cherish so much now for creating my own personal poetry. A big thank you to The RHYL LITTLE THEATRE and the RHYL SILVER BAND. The drama aspect and tenor horn have accompanied me through the years! Thank you, Rhyl High School, Glyndwr and Ysgol Llewelyn -----Irene Grant-Jones nee OWEN. www.grant-jones.co.uk
