Feast of the Assumption of the Virgin, 2013

Respice stellam, voca Mariam. Look to the stars, call upon Mary.

All Manner of Thing

A very happy feast of Our Lady to everyone! Here is the Alleluia chant for today:

And here is Palestrina’s six-part elaboration of a related text, sung by Stile Antico:

A great sign appeared in heaven:
A woman clothed with the sun,
and the moon under her feet,
and on her head a crown of twelve stars. 

Sing ye to the Lord a new song:
because He hath done wonderful things.
