The opera plot follows Shakespeare's famous tragedy Othello fairly closely.  At the beginning of the fourth act, Desdemona is preparing for bed.  She dismisses her companion, Emilia, and kneels at a small prie-dieu where she sings a moving and beautiful Ave Maria to the Madonna.

This solo is edited in a comprehensive and detailed manner.  Larry Hurst’s insightful performance suggestions are enclosed with this music.
