Below is a recording of Fr. José Miguel Marqués Campo chanting the Marian Antiphon, Alma, Redemptoris Mater, at the end of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass on the First Sunday of Advent (29-XI-2015) in the Basilica of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, Gijón, Archdiocese of Oviedo, Asturias, Spain. He is accompanied by Ramón Villoria on organ.
How blessed we are to have Fr. Marqués Campo here with us!
Alma Redemptoris Mater, quæ pervia cæli
Porta manes, et stella maris, succurre cadenti,
Surgere qui curat, populo: tu quæ genuisti,
Natura mirante, tuum sanctum Genitorem
Virgo prius ac posterius, Gabrielis ab ore
Sumens illud Ave, peccatorum miserere.
Mother of Christ! Hear thou thy people’s cry,
Star of the deep, and portal of the sky!
Mother of Him Who thee from nothing made,
Sinking we strive and call to thee for aid;
Oh, by that joy which Gabriel brought to thee,
Thou Virgin first and last, let us thy mercy see.
