1. Ave Maria! ~Schubert~
I’m not entirely sure on why Ayaka H. had to redo Ave Maria again! Yes, the arrangement is totally different from the B-side since it’s based off of Schubert’s arrangement and by that, the song takes on a more upbeat gospel sound. I do like this a lot more since it’s not song longish piano ballad like the version found on “Shinsekai” and this Ave Maria fits the Christmas mood more better IMO. Though, it’s surprisingly short for me…I mean yeesh 2:26???
2. AVE MARIA ~Caccini~ another mix
Which comes to our B-side which is an updated version that was from “Shinsekai”. Unfortunately, there’s wasn’t too much that differentiated this from the original. There’s not much to really comment about this new mix, if there’s even any at all to begin with. It’s alright and the acoustic guitar gave it a nice touch and Ayaka’s ad-libbing spices things up, this just confuses me to why it’s on this single as well.
I’m not sure what this single was released for entirely but it’s alright. I mean I don’t like Ave Maria as a whole, but at least Ayaka was nice enough to at least try to make this song better. The Schubert version was peppy and cute for her. The “new” version of the previously released AVE MARIA doesn’t feel new, nor it was too tough to sense the difference, but whatever.
