Hail Mary / Gentle Woman

Although this is a bit late for yesterday's Feast of the Immaculate Conception, I'm posting it because I heard it at Mass then. Over the years I have certainly done my share of complaining about the banal soft-pop hymns that have been the staple of Catholic music for the past thirty years or more. Some of them are truly awful (I'll resist the urge to name them). But there are a few I like, and this is one of them. The middle part (beginning with "You were chosen...") is a little questionable, but I truly love the setting of the actual Hail Mary at the beginning. So this is partly my way of making up for all the mean things I've said about this sort of music. The volume on this is rather low; I had to turn my speakers way up. And then remember to turn them down, so the next sound that comes from my computer won't make me jump out of my chair.
