Ave regina caelorum
composer
author of text
Antiphon to the Blessed Virgin Mary, from the Feast of the Purification until the Wednesday in Holy Week

Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
The five-part Ave regina caelorum, with its strict canon between the two soprano parts (eight beats apart), pays homage to a work by Guerrero, in this case his motet Ave virgo sanctissima which deploys the same canon. It was intended for the service of Compline between Christmas and the Purification.
