Original text and translations

Original text and translations may be found at Ave Maria. N.B. Parsons' setting utilises the shorter version of the text that was prevalent prior to the additional words (Sancta Maria etc./Holy Mary etc.) appended by St Petrus Canisius in the catechism instigated by the Council of Trent in 1566.

Ave Maria, gratia plena,
Dominus tecum;
benedicta tu in mulieribus,
et benedictus fructus ventris tui.

Hail Mary, full of grace,
the Lord is with thee;
blessed art thou among women,
and blessed is the fruit of thy womb.
