"The apex of the evening was J. Edmund Hughes’s breathtaking setting of the Ave Maria. The work evolved precisely under the talent of Bruffy and his intuitive musicians. A long train of overlapping phrases were sculpted and molded out of the air. Following the liquid harmonies of the opening was a stunning aleatoric section. Each singer, by their own accord, sang a musical figure on the words “Ave Maria,” culminating in a lamentable, heart-wrenching crescendo. The work ended with one of the most delicate and awe-evoking “Amens” I have ever heard—it left me breathless and feeling fortunate to have encountered such a wonderful musical moment in my lifetime."

"After having performed this setting of Ave Maria, my students were truly motivated to learn more about chant. Dr. J Edmund Hughes amazingly crafts chant lines with contemporary harmonies, thus enhancing the true meaning of this popular text. "
