Arvo Pärt's Bogoróditse Djévo Sung by The Choir of King's College, Cambridge

On this the eve of the Solemnity of Mary, the Mother of God, a contemporary setting of the Old Church Slavonic version of the Ave Maria by the world's greatest exponent of Holy Minimalism.
    Богородице дѣво, радѹйсѧ,
    Bogoroditse Djevo, raduisya,
    Theotokos Virgin, rejoice,

    Благодатнаѧ Марїе,
    Blagodatnaya Marie,
    Mary full of grace,

    Господь съ тобою:
    Gospod s' toboyu:
    The Lord is with thee.
    благословена Ты въ женахъ,
    Blagoslovyena tyh v' zhenakh,
    Blessed art thou amongst women,

    и благословенъ плодъ чрева Твоегω;
    Y blagoslovyen plod chreva Tvoyego,
    and blessed is the fruit of thy womb,

    якω Спаса родила еси дѹшъ нашихъ.
    yako Spasa rodila yesi dush nashikh.
    for thou hast borne the Saviour of our souls.
