The music in the advert
Music: Ave Maria | Artist : Maureen Batt
The haunting vocal music in the new Amazon Prime Drum Kit advert is a cover of the classical opera song Ave Maria. The music was composed by Franz Schubert in 1825 as part of his Opus 52, a setting of seven songs from Walter Scott’s popular epic poem The Lady of the Lake. It became one of the Austrian composer’s most popular works which has been recorded many times by various singers. The version in this advert was recorded by Canadian soprano Maureen Batt and is available for download.
