Tota pulchra es, Maria

Happy Feast of the Immaculate Conception!

Here’s something beautiful for Our Lady.

When I was in seminary in Rome, the rector called everyone to the chapel and personally taught all the men this chant.

Here’s another version which I love, by Maurice Durufle.

If some choir were to surprise me with this – sung well – on a Marian feast during Mass, I might either burst into tears or expire on the spot.
