The Ave Maria, or Hail Mary, is an ancient prayer of the Catholic Church asking the intercession of the Virgin Mary, Mother of Jesus. It can be translated as:
Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee.
Blessed art thou amongst women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death.
This setting was composed for the University of Northern Colorado's Men's Glee Club and was performed by them in October of 2002.
