Davies’s Ave Maris Stella has been seen a key work since its first performance in 1975. It is, perhaps, Davies’s most written-about work and much of the knowledge about it is derived from David Roberts’s seminal article for the magazine Contact in 1978, which he later expanded into a section of his thesis, presented in 1985, on Davies’s compositional techniques. Roberts was the first to systematically unpick the compositional workings consequent upon Davies’s use of magic squares although in fact it was Paul Griffiths’s book on the composer published in 1982 which made the analytical detail more widely available.
