Hail Mary in English

Composer Fr Bede Rowe
Here is my musical version of the Hail Mary. After years of walking the Chartres Pilgrimage and singing the Hail Mary in Latin and French, I finally had had enough, and decided that the English should have their own setting.

So I composed this. You can just sing the top line, but it is better if you have two groups of people. It is quite easy. The only tricky bit is to remember that "Holy Mary Mother of God" is in unison, harmonises for a bit, and then splits again.

I like it... but then I would.

Feel free to download, use and sing. This is how I wrote it, so don't change it too much, and it would be nice be credited as well!
