Farkas was 94 years old when he composed his work. In wonderfully refined music and using the well-known words of the Marian hymn, Ave Maris Stella addresses the Virgin Mary as the star of the sea and the blessed gate of heaven. Farkas uses turns of phrase, harmony and voice-leading associated with Renaissance, Baroque, Classical and Romantic sacred music, but in an unusual and individual combination.
