Ave Maria! Maiden mild!
Listen to a maiden's pleading
from these rocks, stark and wild, my prayer shall be wafted to thee.
we shall sleep safely till morning, though men be ever so cruel.
o Maiden, see a maiden's distress, O Mother, hear a suppliant child.
Ave Maria, undefiled!
When we upon this rock lie down
to slumber, and they protection covers us, The hard stone will seem soft to us.
If Though smilest, the scent of roses will float
Through this murky cavern, O Mother, hear a child's petition, O maiden, 'tis a maid that calls!
Ave Maria, Maiden pure, the demons of the earth and air, drien forth by thy gracious glance
cannot stay here with us.
we will camly bow to fate
Since they holy comfort hovers over us; Mayest though be favourably inclined to the maiden, To the child that pleads for her father!

German lyrics which Ive been moaned into putting uo, enjoy.
Ave Maria! Jungfrau mild, Erhöre einer Jungfrau Flehen, Aus diesem Felsen starr und wild
Soll mein Gebet zu dir hinwehen.
Wir schlafen sicher bis zum Morgen, Ob Menschen noch so grausam sind.
O Jungfrau, sieh der Jungfrau Sorgen, O Mutter, hör ein bittend Kind!
Ave Maria! Unbefleckt!
Wenn wir auf diesen Fels hinsinken
Zum Schlaf, und uns dein Schutz bedeckt
Wird weich der harte Fels uns dünken.
Du lächelst, Rosendüfte wehen
In dieser dumpfen Felsenkluft, O Mutter, höre Kindes Flehen, O Jungfrau, eine Jungfrau ruft!
Ave Maria! Reine Magd!
Der Erde und der Luft Dämonen, Von deines Auges Huld verjagt, Sie können hier nicht bei uns wohnen, Wir woll'n uns still dem Schicksal beugen, Da uns dein heil'ger Trost anweht; Der Jungfrau wolle hold dich neigen, Dem Kind, das für den Vater fleht.
'Ave Maria' for SATBB choir, divisi

The History of the piece:
I wrote this piece when I was a sophomore in college. I remember having this dream where I was sitting in a church listening to a choir sing this beautiful music that I had never heard before. Oddly enough, the conductor turned around to me after the performance and told me to write down what I had heard because it was "my own music."
Waking up from the dream I took to pencil and paper and started writing down what I remembered on manuscript paper. It was the first time that I felt like I really had a reason to compose—like it was a way of getting out music that had been laying dormant inside my head. I started and finished the piece within a few hours and by that afternoon, the piece was already in the hands of the director of the CCSU University Singers, in hopes that it might be performed by the group.
Luckily for me, the director, Dr. Pamela Perry, was visibly as excited as I was and after playing it on the piano a bit in front of me, told me she wanted to take it home and look over it some more. The very next day, she came to me saying that she would be happy to have the group perform it, which was probably one of the most exciting moments of my life—the realization that within a few months I would be a working, performed composer. The blessings didn't stop there, however, as the CCSU University Singers would soon be traveling on a tour of Spain and, as I found out, my piece would be on the program.
Since then, my brain has continued to think up new pieces on a daily basis. Often I begin more than five pieces in a day, with some obviously never seeing light. Still, though, I constantly take the time to look back and remember how I got my true start as a performed American classical composer and I really have no one but Dr. Perry to thank.
I hope you enjoy the piece and will continue to look for new pieces of mine, which will surely be coming in the future. On my own channel "MattWeisherComposer, " you will find various selected compositions and I hope you find the time to browse those as well. Thank you for listening.
There's so little to say. Jane will always be superb. Here she is at about 17; she celebrated her 80th birthday on 4/1/09! Happy Birthday, Jane!

Patricia L. Roy, who retired as an assistant commissioner in 1999, passed away Tuesday, May 23 in Ave Maria, Florida where she resided. She was 78. A memorial tribute is scheduled for Sunday, June 11, in the North Central High School Auditorium at 1801 E. 86th Street, Indianapolis. Guests may enter at Door #31 beginning at 2:30 pm ET with the tribute to begin at 3 pm ET.
Regarded both statewide and nationally as a pioneer in girls athletics, Roy served on the IHSAA executive staff for 27 years – longer than anyone in the Association’s history.
Roy's efforts and the role she played in the implementation of girls athletics into the IHSAA program were significant and paved the way for women today. Her administrative skills and foresight were a key component in gaining the structure needed to advance the girls programs to phenomenal growth.
During her tenure, she worked under four of the first six IHSAA commissioners ‐‐ Phil Eskew, Ward Brown, Gene Cato and Bob Gardner. The girls basketball mental attitude award presented annually during the state finals in each classification was renamed in her honor in 2000. “Pat Roy’s dedication to girls sports during the era of Title IX was legendary and her contributions to our Association were many, ” said Commissioner Bobby Cox. “She’ll always be remembered for initiating and advancing athletic opportunities for girls in our state to their prominent place they hold today.”
“Pat Roy was certainly a pioneer for girls' athletics in Indiana, ” said Janis Qualizza, former member of the IHSAA Board of Directors, current Director of Athletics at Merrillville High School and a friend of Pat’s. “She was a hard‐nosed gal who wouldn't take no for an answer. She and (retired assistant commissioner) Mildred Ball were very instrumental in making certain Title IX was embraced in our state. Thanks to both of these ladies for their courage and most importantly their fortitude. Because of their efforts the young ladies in Indiana have been able to excel in the sports of their choice.”
Title IX, the federal statute that prohibits discrimination on the basis of gender, was signed into law on June 23, 1972. Roy had joined the IHSAA just months earlier on Jan. 1, 1972 as the first Director of Girls Athletics as the Association began its implementation of the girls interscholastic sports program. Those programs began in the 1972‐73 school year with a tournament series in volleyball and gymnastics. During the next decade and
beyond, athletic opportunities for girls in Indiana high school increased dramatically with Pat at the forefront of their development.
Roy directly administered various sports during her years at the IHSAA and evaluated and assigned officials within those sports. She also provided the writing, content editing and supervision of several Association publications and interacted with high school principals, athletic directors, coaches groups and committees
throughout the state.
Pat was born Oct. 3, 1938 in Goshen and reared in Allen County where she graduated from Harlan High School. She earned B.S. and M.A. degrees in the field of physical education, driver education, health and business education from Ball State University. Prior to joining the IHSAA as the first Director of Girls Athletics, she had served as the head of the Girls Physical Education Department at East Gary Edison High School from 1964‐71. Previously, she had taught at Chesterton High School (1960‐64), and served as assistant park director at Chesterton during the summers. As an athlete, she was a member of the Fort Wayne Daisies in the All‐American Girls Professional Baseball League.
Prior to joining the IHSAA, Pat had been active in sports programs for girls. Her involvement on the local, state and national levels had given her opportunities to organize tournaments and meets, officiate, schedule, coach and supervise. Her service included working as secretary of the Indiana League of High School Girls Athletic Associations, Midwest district officiating coordinator, and as the Indiana chairman of the United States Gymnastics Federation.
The recipient of numerous awards, Pat had been recognized nationally by the Women's Sports Foundation and the United States Olympic Committee. In Indiana, she was named a Sagamore of the Wabash by Gov. Evan Bayh in 1994, and received the first Marian Archer Award and the ICGSA Service Award from the Indiana
Coaches of Girls Sports Association. She was inducted into the Indiana Basketball Hall of Fame, the Indiana Softball Hall of Fame, the Lake Station Hall of Fame, and the Indiana Coaches of Girls Sports Association Volleyball Hall of Fame.
After residing in Indiana for many years, Pat had recently moved to Ave Maria, Florida.
Don't make your next Rosary just a "check the block" thing....remember this story and you will offer beautiful roses to the Blessed Virgin instead of thorns for the devil to use against you on your day of judgement. Ave Maria.
BLESSED HERMAN JOSEPH OF STEINFELD.
HERMAN from his earliest years was a devoted client of the Mother of God. As a little child he used to spend all his playtime in the church at Cologne before an image of Mary, where he received many favors. One bitter winter day, as little Herman was coming barefooted into church, his heavenly Mother appearing to him, asked him lovingly why his feet were bare in such cold weather. "Alas! dear Lady, " he said, "it is because my parents are so poor." She pointed to a stone, telling him to look beneath it; there he found four silver pieces wherewith to buy shoes. He did not forget to return and thank her. She enjoined him to go to the same spot in all his wants
and disappeared. Never did the supply fail him; but his comrades, moved by a different spirit, could find nothing. Once Our Lady stretched out her hand, and took an apple which the boy offered her in pledge of his love. Another time he saw her high up in the tribune, with the Holy Child and St. John; he longed to join them, but saw no way of doing so; suddenly he found himself placed by their side, and holding sweet converse with the Infant Jesus. At the age of twelve he entered the Premonstratensian house at Steinfeld, and there led an angelic life of purity and prayer. His fellow-novices, seeing what graces he received from Mary, called him Joseph; and when he shrank from so high an honor, Our Lady in a vision took him as her spouse, and bade him bear the name. Jealously she reproved the smallest faults in her betrothed, and once appeared to him as an old woman, to upbraid him for some slight want of devotion. As her dowry, she conferred en him the most cruel sufferings of mind and body, which were especially severe on the great feasts of the Church. But with the cross Mary brought him the grace to bear it bravely, and thus his heart was weaned from earthly things, and he was made ready for his early and saintly death, which took place about the year 1230.
Reflection.—Do not approach our Blessed Mother with set prayers only. Be intimate with her; confide in her; commend to her every want and every project, small as well as great. It is a childlike reliance and a trustful appeal which she delights to reward.
