Description
The Hail Mary is one of the most widespread Marian prayers of the Western Catholic Church. Despite this, the origin of the text is not easy to reconstruct. It can be divided into two parts:
Hail, Mary, full of grace,
the Lord is with thee.
Blessed art thou amongst women
and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary, Mother of God,
pray for us sinners,
now and at the hour of our death.
Amen.
The first part is taken from the Gospel of Luke and comprises the greeting of the angel (first two sentences) and the greeting of Elizabeth; the second dates, in various forms, starting from the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries. The Hail Mary was introduced, in the form known today, in the Roman Breviary by Pope Pius V in 1568.
Cor Jesu is a motet written in 1897 by the priest and composer Pietro Magri (Vigarano Mainarda, Ferrara, 10 May 1873 – Oropa, Biella, 24 July 1937). Trained at the seminary of Faenza where he was an ordained priest, he taught chant from 1889 to 1894, after completing his musical studies with the Cicognani brothers. Called by Lorenzo Perosi in Venice, he worked there as a substitute teacher in Saint Mark’s, as director of the chapel of Saint Salvatore, and as a voice teacher at the seminary and in other institutes. In 1901, he moved to Bari where he was maestro di cappella until 1910, when he moved to the cathedral of Lecce. In 1912, he held the position of master of the Eusebiana Chapel in Vercelli, succeeding Raffaele Casimiri. In 1919, he moved to the Sanctuary of Oropa where he was organist and maestro di cappella until his death.
