Богородице Дево

Do yourself a favor and go to the MP3 Audio Samples at the Arvo Pärt website and download the Slavonic Ave Maria at the top of the page ─ Bogoróditse Djévo ("Rejoice, Mother of God"). The climactic last line ─ "For you have borne the Savior of our souls" ─ is sublime:
    Богородице Дево радуйся,
    благодатная Марие,
    Господь с тобою:
    блогословена ты в женах
    и блогословен плод чрева Твоего,
    яко Спаса родила еси душ наших.

    Bogoróditse dyévo, raduisya,
    Blagodatnaya Mariye
    Gospod s Toboyu.
    Blagoslovenna Ty v zhenakh,
    I blagosloven plod chreva Tvoyevo,
    Yako Spasa rodila yesi dush nashikh.

    Rejoice, O Virgin Theotokos,
    Mary full of grace, the Lord is with you.
    Blessed are you among women,
    And blessed is the fruit of your womb
    For you have borne the Savior of our souls.
