For this celebration of the birth of Our Lord Jesus Christ, I made an original instrumental arrangement for harp guitar of the Schubert version of "Ave María".

The Austrian composer Franz Peter Schubert wrote this song in 1825, originally titled "Ellens dritter Gesang" (Ellens Gesang III, D839, Op 52 no 6, 1825), or "Ellen's Third Song" in English. "Ave Maria" ("Hail Mary" in Latin) are the opening words and in the refrain of Ellen's song. Perhaps this is why Schubert's melody was adapted to the traditional Roman Catholic prayer "Ave Maria". The Latin version of the Ave Maria prayer is what is most frequently used with Schubert's melody.
