“Ave Maria” was originally set to music in 1826 by Franz Schubert. Written in Latin, this prayer is offered to “Hail, Mary, full of grace.” Recorded live at Mundelein Seminary, two seminarians offer Schubert’s “Ave Maria” as a holy prayer to the Virgin Mary.

Recorded live at Sacred Heart Major Seminary in Detroit, Michigan, a group of incredibly talented seminarians performed their rendition of the traditional classical Christian hymn associated with Easter, “Christ the Lord Is Risen Today”. The hymn eventually became well known for its repetitive “Alleluias” sung after each line, which were added by an unknown author to fit the commonly used hymn tune of “Easter Day”. It remains a traditional processional hymn on Easter Sunday.
