If you haven’t seen this program, I would recommend it when you have the chance. I think it first aired a couple of years ago. I’ve posted the first ten minutes below.

Angelus ad Virginem (alternately titled in English: “Gabriel, From Heaven’s King”)
Angelus ad Virginem was a popular medieval carol, whose text is a poetic version of the Hail Mary and the Annunciation to the Virgin Mary. Probably Franciscan in origin, it was brought to Britain by French friars in the 13th century. It is said to have originally consisted of 27 stanzas, with each following stanza beginning with the consecutive letter of the alphabet.
