Ave Maria … virgo serena

author of text
Antiphon for the Blessed Virgin Mary

This motet is one of Josquin’s early works, composed probably in France in the late 1470s. Its text celebrates the five Corporeal Joys of the Blessed Virgin Mary—her Conception, Nativity, Annunciation, Purification and Assumption—and it ends with a personal prayer: ‘O Mother of God, remember me.’
