Ave parens/Ad gratie/AVE MARIA

author of text

This is probably an English piece, like the next. It is the kind of lyrical, mellifluous hymn to the Virgin that English musicians produced easily (perhaps too easily) in the thirteenth century. Unlike the French pieces, it responds to an intonation closer to Just than Pythagorean.
