Victoria, Tomas Luis de: Ave Maria

Ave Maria (1572)

Ave Maria, gratia plena, Dominus tecum.
Benedicta tu in mulieribus et benedictus fructus ventris tui, Jesus.
Sancta Maria, regina cæli, dulcis et pia, o Mater Dei,
ora pro nobis peccatoribus, ut cum electis te videamus.

Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee.
Blessed art thou among women and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary, queen of heaven, gentle and loving, O mother of God,
pray for us sinners that with the chosen we may look upon thee.

Words: Luke 1 vv. 28, 42
Music: Tomás Luis de Victoria (c. 1548–1611)
