Ave Maria Offertory: August 6 2010 for Organum et Vox concert

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


Ave Generosa chant by Hildegard of Bingen: August 6 2010 for Organum et Vox concert, sung by soloist Angela Manney

In the pupil of chastity's eye I beheld you untouched.
Generous maid! Know that it's God who broods over you.
For heaven flooded you like unbodied speech and you gave it a tongue.
Glistening lily: before all worlds you lured the supernal one.
How he reveled in your charms!
How your beauty warmed to his caresses till you gave your breast to his child.
And your womb held joy when heaven's harmonies rang from you,
a maiden with child by God, for in God your chastity blazed.
Yes your flesh held joy like the grass when the dew falls,
when heaven freshens its green: O mother of gladness, verdure of spring.
Ecclesia, flush with rapture! Sing for Mary's sake,
sing for the maiden, sing for God's mother. Sing! Amen.

(Translation by Barbara Newman)
