Notes about today's music This morning’s anthem is a beautiful setting of the Ave Maria by Austrian composer Franz Biebl. The Feast of the Annunciation is usually celebrated on March 25, but Palm Sunday this year falls on that date. Therefore, the feast has been transferred to a later date. The story of the Annunciation, from which the Ave Maria is drawn, is recounted in the first chapter of Luke’s Gospel.
