Music Monday: Honoring the Blessed Virgin Mary: “Ave Maria” by Luciano Pavarotti

Honoring our Blessed Mother:

The month of May is the perfect month for honoring all the Moms as it is the month when the Church honors the Blessed Virgin Mary, the mother of us all.

Music Monday:

Today I’m sharing Schubert’s beautiful “Ave Maria” sung by Luciano Pavarotti during the Three Tenors concert on July 16, 1994.

Held in Los Angeles’ Dodgers Stadium on the eve of the Soccer World Cup and featuring the vocals of the world famous dynamic trio, José Carreras, Plácido Domingo, and Luciano Pavarotti, this 1994 concert was described as the biggest single musical event in history.  Conducted by Zubin Mehta, the tenors were joined by the Los Angeles Philharmonic and the Los Angeles Music Center Opera Chorus.
