VOCES8 sings Franz Biebl's setting of the 'Ave Maria'.
'Angelus Domini nuntiavit Mariae
et concepit de Spiritu sancto.'
The angel of God visited Maria
and she conceived of the Holy Spirit.
'Ave Maria, gratia plena, Dominus tecum.
Benedicta tu in mulieribus,
Et benedictus fructus ventris tui, Jesus.'
Hail Mary, Full of grace, the Lord is with you.
Blessed are you among women,
and blessed is the fruit of your womb, Jesus.
'Sancta Maria, Mater Dei, ora pro nobis peccatoribus,
Sancta Maria, ora pro nobis, nunc et in hora mortis nostrae.
Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners,
Holy Mary, pray for us now and in the hour of our death.
