Love them all of course, but a bit more #6. The lilies and floating clouds on blue really add to it.

Not listed in the first post, "Sing of Mary", I think this sung by Robert and Robin Kochis is very lovely.
Also, I saw a flyer with the lyrics of "Bring Flowers of the Rarest".
Bring Flowers of the Rarest Hymn
O Mary we crown thee with blossoms today!
Queen of the Angels and Queen of the May.
O Mary we crown thee with blossoms today,
Queen of the Angels and Queen of the May.
Bring flowers of the rarest
bring blossoms the fairest,
from garden and woodland and hillside and dale;
our full hearts are swelling,
our glad voices telling
the praise of the loveliest flower of the vale!
Their lady they name thee,
Their mistress proclaim thee,
Ah, grant that thy children on earth be as true
as long as the bowers
are radiant with flowers,
as long as the azure shall keep its bright hue
Sing gaily in chorus;
the bright angels o'er us
re-echo the strains we begin upon earth;
their harps are repeating
the notes of our greeting,
for Mary herself is the cause of our mirth

IMHO, one of the best Marian hymns is "Queen of the Holy Rosary" I don't think that is in post one... a lot of renditions of all of these....
Sung by the Daughters of St. Paul, a "soft" version. I do like a number of their songs.
Whether I am into Medjugorje or not is besides the point here, I had this on cassette back in the day, I'm glad someone downloaded it. "Immaculate Mary" performed by Michael O'Brien.
"Salve Mater Misericordiae" is listed in the "beautiful songs" thread, that's really good, I won't post again...
I'm posting this here, it has to do with Our Lady of Sorrows, the Stations of the Cross but I did not care to go off-topic in that other thread:
It's interesting that I see the "Stabat Mater" seemingly be used for both the Stations of the Cross and Our Lady of Sorrows (Dolors), "Stabat Mater" is famous but I don't know if I ever heard this Latin version.
I heard the English version quite a few times at the Stations of the Cross.
Some of this is more for those musically inclined, not myself. I finally got to talk some to the organist at church.
With May coming soon to a close....
1. 'Tis the month of our Mother
The blessed and beautiful days,
When our lips and our spirits,
are glowing with love and with praise.
All Hail! to thee, dear Mary,
the guardian of our way;
To the fairest of Queens,
Be the fairest of seasons, sweet May.

This is so beautiful, I'll just leave it at that....except this hymnal soundtrack, this song is in "The Miracle of Our Lady of Fatima" movie...is that a harp?? I think the arrangement is by a Mr. David Phillips. Of course, traditional song. Whomever did this, is very talented...
So lovely, all that you've added here, TinNM!
I'm now especially glad to be a May "baby" (birthday).
Hear Clapton and Pavarotti sing a prayer to the "Holy Mother" (aleteia.org)
"Holy Mary" - How about that, Eric Clapton did write a Marian tune and it is rather beautiful, I think this is the way we indeed to feel sometimes.
There may be a "studio" version of this vs. this live with Pavoratti.

Something different, "Pasodobles" from Spain?? Or maybe South America...
This is from Seville:
Looks like a genre in itself.
My departed sisters favorite Mary hymn. I asked them to play it at her funeral. She would sing it around the house.
Eternity rest grant unto them oh Lord! I pray she and my father are now in heaven and looking out for us now as they always did while alive!
We are still on page 1? Anyway, maybe sometimes if music comes out of the Philippines (or wherever), I don't relate as well or otoh, maybe I do relate to it. BTW, 53 seconds in is the same image as AED's avatar. This is actually a pretty good song aside from a modern sound which may not go well with some.
This appears to be from India:
"Sing of Mary" by the Cajun band L'Angélus

Posted earlier was "Sing of Mary", sometimes, it's hard to tell what is the best version.
How unusual and beautiful. Thank you.
