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

 
Lassus spent the best part of forty years in Munich, directing the chapel choir of the Dukes of Bavaria, and composing vast quantities of music for it to sing. This eight-voice Ave regina caelorum, one of five settings of this text by him, would have been performed at the end of the evening service of Compline in the period leading up to Holy Week.
