The fourteenth-century Irish carol Angelus ad virginem is performed here in a cheerful arrangement by Sir David Willcocks (b1919). The bright organ introduction is answered by the choir who sing the Latin hymn and tell the story of the Angel Gabriel’s visit to Mary, found in the first Chapter of the Gospel according to Luke. In the third verse the second choir provides the accompaniment whilst the first choir sings the melody before all join together for the final verse.
