Schubert's Ave Maria, Sung by Celine Dion

In this version of Ave Maria, composed by 28-year-old Franz Schubert, who was filled with devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary, a young woman in hiding prays to the Mother of God. This is Schubert's original conception, translated into English.

For the Latin challenged:
Ave maria
Gratia plena,
Maria gratia plena,
Maria gratia plena,
Ave, ave,
Dominus, Dominus tecum.

Hail Mary
Filled with grace,
Mary, filled with grace,
Mary, filled with grace,
Hail, hail,
The Lord, the Lord is with you.
