Ave maris stella
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
Victoria set the Hymn Ave maris stella twice and published one version in 1581 and this second one in 1600. Alternate verses are sung to plainsong (in one of the many variants of this memorable tune) and the polyphony paraphrases and elaborates it. Ave maris stella is the Hymn at First Vespers on Feasts of the Blessed Virgin.
