A short and gentle setting of this Marian antiphon, ideal for any Marian feast day or Advent. Preferably to be sung a cappella, though if accompaniment is used, it should be as unobtrusive as practicable. My translation: Gracious and nourishing Mother of the Redeemer, you who remain the Gateway to Heaven and Star of the Sea, hasten to help those who fall and seek to rise; you who, while Nature stood in admiration, gave birth to Him who made you, Virgin before and after [His birth]; you who received the ’Ave’ [Hail, Mary] from the mouth of Gabriel, take pity on sinners.
