This is Institucion Teresiana's version

Hello!  I graduated from Poveda Learning Centre (class of 1980), originally called Institucion Teresiana in Manila Philippines. We had annual Marian song competitions and I am told this version, which Povedans call "As the Rain Rushes Down" was composed by an earlier class.  I think it has one verse as Maria sings it.

Maria's version of the Magnificat

I've been looking for this version and finally  found the one I grew up with, that is, Maria's version.  Back in the early 70's they used to sing it at the National Shrine of Our Lady of Lourdes in Metro Manila, Philippines.  I remember it having been sung with several verses but only the 1st verse stuck in my head, the one Maria sang. Back then it was sung during Holy Communion. I remember this because we only came to this church annually during the 9 day novena for Our Lady of Lourdes and found that somehow their mass songs were different from that of the other churches including my own parish. Their songs had a different tempo. Another song sang at the church that stuck in my mind was 'Come down Lord my son is ill'.
