Josef Anton Bruckner was born on September 4, 1824 in the upper Austrian town of Ansfelden. His father was a schoolteacher and church organist, and Bruckner's initial studies followed similar lines. When Bruckner was 13, his father died, and he enrolled in the church school at St. Florian (some ten miles from Linz) as a chorister. There, he studied organ, piano, and music theory.

At the age of 16, he entered a teacher-training school in Linz, and began work as a schoolteacher at St. Florian in 1845. He became the cathedral organist in 1848. At St. Florian he began to compose sacred music. In 1855, he went to Vienna to formally study harmony and counterpoint at the Vienna Conservatory under Professor Simon Sechter. The next year, he became the cathedral organist in Linz, and began studies in orchestration with Otto Kitzler, a cellist who introduced Bruckner to Wagner's operas.

On his own, Bruckner assiduously studied the music of Renaissance Italian polyphonic masters such as Palestrina and German Baroque composers, especially J.S. Bach. He completed his studies with Sechter in 1861, and began to make a name for himself as a composer and an improviser at the organ. He moved to Vienna in 1868 to take appointments as the Emperor's court organist and to take over Sechter's professorship in harmony and counterpoint at the Vienna Conservatory.

Bruckner spent the 1870's and 1880's giving masterful organ recitals and composing symphonies. Due to his failing health, he resigned from the Conservatory in 1891, and devoted his last years to work on his ninth symphony. This symphony, sadly, remained incomplete at the time of his death in Vienna on October 11, 1896.

The Ave Maria is a supplication to the Virgin Mary, based on text from the annunciation. Bruckner wrote this seven-part setting in 1861, making it the first major composition that he completed after five years of arduous study with Sechter. The first segment of Bruckner's setting contrasts the three-part women's choir and the four-part men's choir, which unite in the proclamation of the name of Jesus. The second segment is for all seven parts, with a particularly effective diminuendo as the choir asks for intervention for us sinners.

Although this piece was originally written for Voices (SAATTBB), I arranged it for Woodwind Septet (Flute, Oboe, English Horn, Bb Clarinet, French Horn, Bass Clarinet & Bassoon).
