More about this Level 4 "Ave Maria" by Gounod & Bach:
This is a piano sheet music of "Ave Maria" by French composer, Charles Gounod. Gounod created a melody on top of J. S. Bach's "Prelude in C Major" from The Well-Tempered Clavier. It is commonly played by piano and voice. However, this particular arrangement here is for piano solo. You'll be playing both the accompaniment part and melody line (which was originally written for singing). It is at an intermediate level (level 4). Therefore, there are no specific damper pedal markings. However, you can add damper pedaling mostly on each measure. The fingering numbers are not provided for this arrangement. The key for this arrangement is written in the key of C Major which is the original key of Bach's original "Prelude in C Major" although the common key that is used to sing is in the key of F Major. Unlike the Level 5 arrangement of this piece, in this Level 4 arrangement, the left-hand accompaniment does not expand wider than an octave for this level. If you can reach an octave, the left-hand part should be manageable for you. Also, the right-hand part doesn't play a lot of notes at the same time, only a few times each line, unlike the Level 5 arrangement.
