The Angelic Salutation to Mary, announcing the Incarnation of Jesus
A Concert of Sacred Music presented by a choir and orchestra conducted by Fr. Romeo Monteiro.
The programme titled Ave Maria, is a mediation on the Sacred Mystery of the Incarnation of Our Lord, using the medium of music and song. The salutation of the Archangel Gabriel to Mary, a young girl from Nazareth, chosen by the Lord to send Jesus into the world, can be considered as the starting point of this singular event of the Incarnation of our Saviour. The Ave Maria, uttered by this heavenly messenger sent by God to Mary, coupled with the popular prayer of supplication – the Sancta Maria – is perhaps the most popular prayer on the lips of the Catholic faithful all over the world.
The singers and musicians will render 12 sublime choral compositions of this invocation that were set to music by composers down the ages, in various languages and traditions.
