Fr Jack Collins bets “you don’t know Jack… about the Feast of the Assumption.”
For your penance… 3 Hail Marys. Just kidding. Actually, I do have 3 Hail Mary (Ave Maria) versions below and I would like to propose a competition of sorts, in honor of the Blessed Virgin Mary’s feast today. What’s your favorite Ave?
For those who are interested in participating, listen to (at least part of) the 3 Ave Marias below:
- A Bach/Gounod Ave with Harp and female vocalist on Celtic Woman
- A Schubert Ave sung by Aaron Neville in Latin
- A Schubert Ave performed by an Anonymous Opera in German
Let us know which of theses you like best, or nominate another “write in” in the comments below.
Celtic Woman — Bach/Gounod Ave Maria
Aaron Neville — Schubert Ave Maria (Latin)
Anonymous Opera — Schubert Ave Maria (German)
