Salve festa dies

I found an mp3 recording of St. Venantius Fortunatus' "Salve Festa Dies" in Gregorian Chant. Here it is.

According to the Web site home page, it's sung by the Benedictine Monks of the Abbey Saint-Maurice and Saint-Maur at Clervaux [Clairvaux?], recorded in Luxemburg in 1960.
Enjoy.

I don't know if you've brought the server down ;-), but it doesn't work for me. :(

I'll try tomorrow.

A literal translation of the Salve Festa Dies refrain, and the first of the many verses, with musical notation, is provided from Sarum manuscripts as part of the Liturgical Texts Project at:

Rejoice, O Virgin Mother of God, Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou among women and blessed is the Fruit of thy womb, for thou hast born the Savior of our souls.
