Amália Rodrigues ” Avé Maria Fadista ” de Gabriel de Oliveira e Música: Vianinha

Avé Maria sagrada 
Cheia de graça divina 
Oração tão pequenina 
De uma beleza elevada. 

Nosso Senhor é convosco, 
Bendita sois vós, Maria. 
Nasceu vosso Filho, um dia, 
Num palheiro humilde e tosco. 

Entre as mulheres bendita, 
Bendito é o fruto, a luz, 
Do vosso ventre, Jesus
Louvor e graça infinita. 

Santa Maria das dores, 
Mãe de Deus, se for pecado, 
Tocar e cantar o fado
Rogai por nós pecadores. 

Nenhum fadista tem sorte, 
Rogai por nós Virgem Mãe. 
Agora, sempre e também 
Na hora da nossa morte.

From Wikipedia:

Amália da Piedade Rodrigues,[1] GCSEGCIH, (July 23, 1920 – October 6, 1999), known as Amália Rodrigues (Portuguese pronunciation: [ɐˈmaliɐ ʁuˈðɾiɣɨʃ]), was a Portuguese singer and actress. She was known as the Rainha do Fado (“Queen of Fado”) and was most influential in popularizing the fado worldwide. She was one of the most important figures in the genre’s development, and enjoyed a 50-year recording and stage career. Amália’ performances and choice of repertoire pushed fado’s boundaries and helped redefine it and reconfigure it for her and subsequent generations. In effect, Amália wrote the rulebook on what fado could be and on how a female fadista — or fado singer — should perform it, to the extent that she remains an unsurpassable model and an unending source of repertoire for all those who came afterwards. Amália enjoyed an extensive international career between the 1950s and the 1970s, although in an era where such efforts were not as easily quantified as today. She was the main inspiration to other well-known international fado and popular music artists such as MadredeusDulce Pontes, and Mariza.
