Christmas Song 1: Ave Maria

Since I absolutely love the Christmas season, I have decided to periodically post videos of me singing some of my favorite Christmas songs the rest of this month and the month of December.  I, of course, will still post my other regular posts.  One of my favorite Christmas songs is actually not always considered Christmas.  "Ave Maria" by Franz Shubert is a beautiful song about the Virgin Mary being blessed among women.  Here are the Latin words followed by the English translation.

Ave Maria
Gratia plena
Maria, gratia plena
Maria, gratia plena
Ave, ave dominus
Dominus tecum
Benedicta tu in mulieribus
Et benedictus
Et benedictus fructus ventris
Ventris tui, Jesus
Ave Maria, gratia plena

Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee;
blessed art thou among 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. Amen.
