"The Angel of the Lord appeared unto Mary, and she conceived of the Holy Spirit...
Behold the Handmaid of the Lord, be it done to me according to Thy Word..."
"... And the Word Became Flesh and dwelt among us."
Wishing you a Happy Feast of the Annunciation with music
and a beautiful meditation from St. Bernard of Clairvaux!
Above is a video of my beloved alma mater's Schola Cantorum Franciscana singing part of the chant version of "Ave Maris Stella," then part of Josquin's setting of the same chant hymn, definitely well worth a listen! The Schola sang this at the Vespers of the Blessed Virgin Spring 2011, while I was studying abroad in Austria. The hymn begins, "Hail Star of the Sea ..."
In the second verse, the hymn sings of the Annunciation: "Receiving that 'Ave' from the mouth of Gabriel, establishing us in peace, transforming the name of 'Eva.'"
