Hello everbody,

This is my first serious choral composition, which I composed to practise counterpoint and voice leading.
The piece is an Ave Maria, but the language is Dutch, which made it quite hard to compose music on.
It is a hard language regarding accentuation.

Dutch text:

Wees gegroet, Maria, vol van genade.
De Heer is met U.
Gij zijt de gezegende onder de vrouwen,
En gezegend is Jezus, de Vrucht van Uw schoot.
Heilige Maria, Moeder van God,
Bid voor ons, zondaars,
Nu en in het uur van onze dood.
Amen.

There is trouble with the audio in this topic, so here is the link:

Nevertheless, I am pretty content with it.

What do you think? Tips are welcome!

Nice piece! Parallel fifths and octaves aren't ideal, though they sound okay in this piece where they occur.
