"Ave Maria" was composed by Franz Schubert in 1825. The lyrics are a loose German translation by Adam Storck of a part of the epic English poem "The Lady of the Lake" by Walter Scott. In this part of the poem, the heroine, Ellen Douglas, is praying to the Virgin Mary. The English here is the original text by Sir Walter Scott.

Ave Maria is often sung at Christmas time. It's also sung at weddings and funerals.
