music by G. P. da Palestrina (1526-1594)


Alma Redemptoris Mater,
(Loving mother of the Redeemer,)
quae pervia caeli porta manes,
(who remains the gate by which we enter heaven,)
et stella maris,
(and star of the sea,)
succurre cadenti surgere qui curat populo:
(help your fallen people who strive to rise.)

Tu quae genuisti, natura mirante,
(You who gave birth, amazing nature,)
tuum sanctum Genitorem:
(to your sacred Creator:)
Virgo prius ac posterius,
(Virgin prior and following,)
Gabrielis ab ore sumens illud Ave,
(taking from the mouth of Gabriel that hail,)
peccatorum miserere.
(have mercy on our sins.)

-Marian antiphon
