From what Sus49 described as far as the bowing mark is concerned, it sounds like she is talking about the Ave Maria sheet music from the Fiddlerman sheet music collection. 🙂
Once I figured the bowing distribution I've always made a very short stop before continuing the down bow, not sure if this is correct though.
It's easy to play any musical instrument: all you have to do is touch the right key at the right time and the instrument will play itself. Johann S.Bach
