Here is a link to my song "Ave Maria (Ellen's Prayer)" as performed March 10 in Minneapolis.

The singer is Christina Christensen, mezzo-soprano (https://www.facebook.com/ccmezzosoprano) and the pianist is Emily Urban (https://www.facebook.com/emilylurban).

Lyric to my "Ave Maria"

AVE MARIA
(Ellen’s Prayer)

Ave Maria! Maiden mild! O, listen to a maiden’s prayer!
Thou canst hear though from the wild, thou canst save amid despair.

Ave Maria! Ave Maria!

May safe we sleep beneath thy care, though banished, outcast and reviled.
O, maiden! Hear a maiden’s prayer,

Let thy protection hover there,
The murky cavern’s heavy air shall breathe of balm if thou hast smiled;

Then maiden hear me as I pray,
Ave Maria,
Maria, Ave!

(After Walter Scott)
