If you're expecting a rendition of Schubert's well-known Ave Maria, think again. This version by Caccini is altogether more poignant, growing all the more passionate as the piece goes on - accompanied by the haunting strains of a classical guitar. "The first time I sang this was at John Barry’s memorial concert at The Royal Albert Hall. John's wife Laurie wanted to include this piece as it was special to her and John. It's not the usual Schubert or Gounod version that people are used to, its totally different and beautiful."
