Description: Though listed as a cappella, it was fairly common to have instruments playing with voices, especially the lower, less vocal cantus parts.

Ave Maria, gratia plena, ego peccator suspiro ad te.
Dominus tecum, benedicta tu in mulieribus,et benedictus fructus ventris tui, Jesus. Amen.

Benedicta tu in mulieribus, et benedictus Jesus, dulcissimus fructus ventris tui. Amen.

Inclinas ad me, intercede pro me ad dilectissimum filium tuum, ut mundet mea peccatis,
liberet me a poenis, ut salvet me in coelis, ut vivam cum beatis.

Et tua gratia sit mecum.
Gloria mulierum, gemma virginum, stella sacerdotum, rosa martirum,
domina apostolorum, regina angelorum, foecunditas coelorum, Jesu Dei mater. Amen.
