Two peasants stop their daily work and remain in devotion while the voice of the bell is calling for the ancient prayer.

Angelus Domini nuntiavit Mariæ
Et concepit de Spiritu Sancto

Ecce Ancilla Domini.
Fiat mihi secundum Verbum tuum.

Et Verbum caro factum est.
Et habitavit in nobis.

(The Moderns)
