"Gabriel's Message" as written by Sabine Baring-gould and Edgar Pettman....
The angel Gabriel from heaven came
His wings as drifted snow
His eyes as flame
"All hail" said he "thou lowly maiden Mary
Most highly favored lady," Gloria, Gloria

"For known a blessed mother thou shalt be
All generations laud and honor thee
Thy Son shall be Emanuel
By seers foretold
Most highly favored maid," Gloria, Gloria

Then gentle Mary meekly bowed her head
"To me be as it pleaseth God," she said,
"My soul shall laud and magnify His holy name."
Most highly favored lady, Gloria, Gloria

    General CommentThis is one of my favorite songs. The use of overlaying vocal tracks is exquisite.
