'Simple Gifts' will be the first of many steps towards achieving this goal. 3. Schubert: Ave Maria -- 5:12 In 1825 Franz Schubert composed one of the most famous classical songs in German as part of his settings of seven songs from Walter Scott's poem The Lady of the Lake. Originally in German and called "Ellens dritter Gesang" / "Ellen's third song", it became popular when the context was changed into a prayer under the title Ave Maria using traditional latin text. Jennifer says: "This is my most requested song to perform at weddings and funerals. It was the first song that I definitely knew I wanted to include on my EP. It is such a beautiful melody and instantly recognisable. It is also a very personal song for many people as it holds sentimental value from special occasions when it is often performed." LATIN Ave Maria, gratia plena, / Hail Mary, full of grace, Maria, gratia plena / Mary, full of grace, Ave, Ave, Dominus / Hail, Hail, the Lord Dominus tecum / The Lord is with thee. Benedicta tu in mulieribus, et benedictus, / Blessed art thou among women, and blessed Et benedictus fructus ventris (tui), / Blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Ventris tui, Jesus. / Thy womb, Jesus Ave Maria! Ave Maria! Sancta Maria, Mater Dei, / Holy Mary, Mother of God, Ora pro nobis peccatoribus, / Pray for us sinners, Ora, ora pro nobis; / Pray, pray for us; Ora, ora pro nobis peccatoribus, / Pray for us sinners, Nunc et in hora mortis, / Now, and at the hour of our death In hora mortis nostrae. / The hour of our death. Ave Maria! / Ave Maria!
