"Ave Maris Stella" is a plainsong Vespers hymn to Mary. It was especially popular in the Middle Ages and has been used by many composers as the basis of other compositions. The creation of the original hymn has been attributed to several people, including Bernard of Clairvaux, Saint Venantius Fortunatus and Hermannus Contractus. The text is found in 9th-century manuscripts, kept in Vienna and in the Abbey of Saint Gall.
