The “Ave Virgo”

The beautiful text of the Ave Virgo is attributed to our holy father St. Norbert, said to have been composed as part of an Office in honor of the Immaculate Conception, and chanted to this day as the antiphon for the Nunc Dimittis canticle at Compline on her Solemnity (December 8th):

Hail, O Virgin, who, preserved by the Holy Spirit, hast triumphed over the formidable sin of our first parents, without being tainted by it.
