This rendition of Ave Marie performed by the great Joni James was produced by Joni's late husband Tony Acquaviva.
~This heartwarming and thrilling rendition of "Ave Marie" was originally recorded on the album "One Hundred Voices...One Hundred Strings & Joni James.~
The Angelic Salutation, Hail Mary, or Ave Maria (Latin) is a traditional Catholic prayer asking for the intercession of the Virgin Mary, the mother of Jesus. The Hail Mary is used within Roman Catholicism, and it forms the basis of the Rosary. The prayer is also used by the Eastern Orthodox and Oriental Orthodox as well as by many other groups within the Catholic tradition of Christianity including Independent Catholics, and Old Catholics. Some Protestant denominations, such as Lutherans, also make use of the prayer. Most of the text of the Hail Mary can be found within the Gospel of Luke.
~Please enjoy this very special song so loved by my late father who used to sing this in the church choir during this holy season~
