Item description for Maiden and Mother: Prayers, Hymns, Songs and Devotions to Honour the Blessed Virgin Mary Throughout the Year by Margaret R. Miles...

Overview
This unique Marian devotional includes hymns, prayers, songs, ballads, litanies, and other texts drawn from all centuries, bringing together a precious collection of texts from the most ancient to modern. The selection is arranged under main headings for the seasons of the Church's year, with sub-sections covering all the major feasts of Our Lady plus some others observed locally or still popular. The months of May, dedicated to Mary, and October, the month of the Rosary, have devotions arranged on the traditional pattern for different times of day. Brief introductions to each feast and season are provided, with a note on the history, significance, and liturgical celebration of each. The best-known medieval hymns and prayers are given in their original Latin as well as English. The whole builds into a book for private or small-group devotion to the Blessed Virgin that has no rival for comprehensiveness and usefulness. It will appeal both to those who feel deprived of traditional forms of devotion and to those who are conscious of the increasing significance of the figure of the Virgin in today's world.

Publishers Description
This inspiring collection of hymns, prayers, songs, and poems in honor of the Virgin Mary has been drawn from all centuries and from both liturgical and non-liturgical sources. It can be used as a daily companion or in small groups and will both refresh memories and provide new inspiration.

Many of the finest Christian compositions in prose and verse have been devoted to the Mother of God over the centuries. It is now very difficult to find them brought together either in their original language (mainly Latin) or in the vernacular. This book does so and thereby fills a significant gap in devotional literature.

The material is arranged in sections following the Church's year. The two months especially devoted to Mary, May and October, provide traditional prayers and hymns provided for each of the feasts of Mary included. Musical settings, in plainchant and modern notations, are supplied for many hymns and chants.

With interest in Mary growing in all mainstream Christian Churches, this book responds to a wide need and will appeal to Catholics and many other Christians.
