A Maiden most gentle

French traditional

This carol sings of the Archangel Gabriel and the Virgin Mary (The archangel Gabriel foretold by his call). The text also mentions the visit by the Three Wise Men to the new-born Christ. The melody is of French origin. Its arranger has taken the well-known version by English
composer Andrew Carter (1939) as his starting point, but gives the piece a surprising and original twist. (arr.: Jelle Stellingwerf)

S/A/T/Brt/2 harmoniums.

French traditional — Words: the Venerable Bede

A maiden most gentle and tender we sing:
of Mary the mother of Jesus our King.
Ave, Ave, Ave Maria.

How blessed is the birth of her heavenly child,
who came to redeem us in Mary so mild.
Ave, Ave, Ave Maria.

The Archangel Gabriel foretold by his call
the Lord of creation and Saviour of all.
Ave, Ave, Ave Maria.

Three kings came to worship with gifts rich and rare,
And marvelled in awe at the babe in her care.
Ave, Ave, Ave Maria.

Rejoice and be glad at this Christmas we pray.
Sing praise to the Savior, sing endless “Ave”!
Ave, Ave, Ave Maria.
