  1. Ave Maria

From the album Seasons of Our Faith

The “Ave Maria” has been a favorite of mine for many years. We put it on my Christmas CD a few years ago and so I thought I’d share that recording on this CD as well.

Lyrics

Ave Maria
(Charles Gounod/Schubert)

Ave Maria maiden mild
Oh listen to a maiden's prayer
For thou canst hear amid the wild
'Tis thou 'tis thou canst save amid despair

We slumber safely till the morrow
Though we've by man outcast reviled
Oh maiden see a maiden's sorrow
Oh mother hear a suppliant child
Ave Maria

Ave Maria gratia plena
Maria gratia plena
Maria gratia plena
Ave ave dominus
Dominus tecum

The murky cavern's air so heavy
Shall breathe of balm if thou hast smiled
Oh maiden hear a maiden pleadin'
Oh mother hear a suppliant child
Ave Maria
Ave Maria
