I found this and thought you might like to see it.

Ave Maria in Latin

"Ave Maria
Gratia plena
Dominus tecum
Benedicta tu in mulieribus
Et benedictus fructus ventris tui, Jesus
Sancta Maria
Mater Dei
Ora pro nobis peccatoribus
Nunc et in hora mortis nostrae
Amen."


Ave Maria in Italian

Ave, O Maria, piena di grazia, il Signore e con te.
Tu sei benedetta fra le donne e benedetto e il frutto del ventre tuo, Gesu.
Santa Maria, madre di Dio, 
prega per noi peccatori,
adesso e nell'ora della nostra morte,
Amen

Ave Maria in Spanish

Dios te salve, Maria, llena eres de gracia, el Senor es contigo;
bendita Tu eres entre todas las mujeres,
y bendito es el fruto de tu vientre, Jesus.
Santa Maria, Madre de Dios, ruega por nosotros, pecadores,
ahora y en la hora de nuestra muerte.
Amen

Ave Maria in traditional French:

Je vous salue, Marie pleine de grâces
le Seigneur est avec vous.
Vous êtes bénie entre toutes les femmes et Jésus,
le fruit de vos entrailles, est béni.
Sainte Marie, Mère de Dieu,
priez pour nous pauvres pécheurs,
maintenant et à l'heure de notre mort.
Ainsi soit-il.

Oh this is beautiful, I find myself trying to say it in French, Italian.. Spanish just for the sounds of the words.

I put up the new prayer book recently on the site, and you know how I hunt down the Latin, but I do not like only just the Latin. Sometimes I like to get the words in the other language too, I was just thinking that -- and here you posted this! The angels are talking to one another no?

I was thinking, St. John, he is the greatest Spanish poet who ever lived, I should like to see his poetry in Spanish too, so I could sound it out. And in the prayer book, I will have to sometime include more parallels than just the Latin/English, when there is an original language that it would be good to hear it in.

The French is so beautiful isn't it? I pronounce it terribly. I took French and Latin in highschool, and studied Japanese with a tutor for a time. My French is terrible, it sounds like Italian, that was what I was told.  Shocked

Il est assassiner de la langue!

[It is murder of the language, and yes I had to use a machine for that!]

Well, I murder it too, but at least we enjoy it. I only took 3 years of French but my brother had 10 years, so he's starting to send French emails to me, to try to update my French. Luckily, even though it's been 35 years since I spoke it, it comes back fairly easy ('course he's just on the basics).

I never took any of the other languages (well, a couple years of intra-district TV Spanish that no one in the class paid any attention to, doesn't count - I can only count to 39 and say what 'table' or 'house' are).

Italian I never even heard until I watched EWTN the first time and heard the Holy Father giving the homily. Latin I never learned at all, except in the choir that I was in that sang a lot of Latin.

Anyway, I love the sound of French and of Latin the most. Surprisingly, my granddaughter, at a few months shy of 4, likes the sound of French best, too. Many DVDs have the story in Spanish or French or English, and her favorite is the French. I haven't done that with my grandson - I'll have to try that.

Well, she would love the sound of French..

Who can't?

The French poets, all they have to do is write whatever comes into their head, because it all sounds good no matter what!

I used to listen to a few French songs, but since most opera is in Italian, that is what I hear most, or German -- But I am trying to listen to less opera these days and more sacred and classical music.

Lately I am listening to my grandfather's favorite tenor, Mario Lanza, he does a wonderful 'Ave Maria', 'You'll Never Walk Alone' and 'Danny Boy'.

What French do I have, let's see.. Some motets.. Some Patricia Kaas.. I wonder if I will keep this stuff. I can't listen to these French singing ladies for long or I will stop wanting to become a monk. So out they go! The boot!

I never thought of it but (Pavorotti is my favorite tenor) all the best tenors are Italian. Even The Priests (I love them) sing in Latin, English, Italian or German, but no French songs. Sad

I think I've seen CDs made by French Benedictines. Would that help?

That sounds like something Joan of Arc would say, except she would have said it in French!  Wink   Cheesy

I like how Norma Zimmer on The Lawrence Welk Show sings Ave Maria.
