Ave Verum by William Byrd

2008-version (low key)

2006-version (high key)

The haunting melodies of this work seem to lend themselves to the Theremin and I've created two theremin renditions of the work.  My initial version, recorded in 2006, is in C#-minor because I felt that the theremin voicing was too thick in the lower key.

I revisited this work a couple of years later and decided to re-record in a-flat minor and to slow the tempo a bit.
