    Franz Schubert's 'Ave Maria' was originally titled "Ellens dritter Gesang" ("Ellens Gesang III", D. 839, Op. 52, No. 6, 1825), in English: "Ellen's Third Song" as part of his Op. 52, a setting of seven songs from Walter Scott's popular epic poem "The Lady of the Lake", loosely translated into German.
