Mary Mother of our Lord - Music?

Post by aussi_guy »

Hi Everyone,

I am looking for suitable music for my choir to sing during communion (Anglican Church) this Sunday for Mary Mother of our Lord.
We can't sing anything too 'tricky' but can manage a fairly easy SATB anthem. Can anyone make some suitable suggestions?

Also, does anyone know where I can find an easy chant to use as an introit for: Hail Mary, full of grace etc etc...?

This is a fairly easy motet by Josquin, in case it's workable for your choir: ... ia_a_4.pdf

An easier anthem, and in English:

Abel diMarco has an edition of the Ave Maria chant:

I hope this helps...
