'Hauntingly beautiful music … A most rewarding experience' (Organists' Review) 'This is vocal chamber music of a high order—secure in tuning, varied in sonority and elegant in phrasing' (Early Music)» More
Salve regina misericordiae, vita dulcedo et spes nostra salve. Ad te clamamus, exsules filii Hevae. Ad te suspiramus, gementes et flentes in hac lacrimarum valle. Eia ergo, advocata nostra, illos tuos misericordes oculos ad nos converte. Et Jesum, benedictum fructum ventris tui, nobis post hoc exilium ostende. O clemens, o pia, o dulcis virgo Maria.
Ave regina caelorum, ave domina angelorum: salve radix, salve porta. Ex qua mundo lux est orta: gaude virgo gloriosa, super omnes speciosa: vale, o valde decora. Et pro nobis semper Christum exora.
Beata mater et inupta virgo gloriosa regina mundi, intercede pro nobis ad Dominum Deum nostrum, O dulcis Maria.
Inviolata, integra et casta es Maria: Quae es effecta fulgida caeli porta. O mater alma Christi carissima. Suscipe pia laudum praeconia. Nostra ut pura pectora sint et corpora: Te nunc flagitant devota corda et ora.
Tua per precata dulcissima. Nobis concedas veniam per saecula. O benigna! O regina! O Maria! Quae sola inviolata permansisti.
Hortus conclusus es, Dei genetrix, fons signatus, surge, propera, amica mea. O dulcis Maria.
Alma redemptoris mater, quae pervia caeli porta manes, et stella maris, succurre cadenti surgere qui curat populo: Tu quae genuisti, natura mirante, tuum sanctum genitorem: virgo prius ac posterius. Gabrielis ab ore sumens illud Ave, peccatorum miserere.
Ave Maria, gratia plena: Dominus tecum: benedicta tu in mulieribus, et benedictus fructus ventris tui, o dulcis Maria.
Hail queen of mercy, hail our sweetness and hope. To you we call, exiled sons of Eve. To you we sigh, groaning and weeping in this vale of tears. Look then, our advocate, turn those merciful eyes of yours to us. And after this exile show to us Jesus, blessed fruit of your womb. O merciful, O holy, O sweet virgin Mary.
Hail queen of the heavens, hail mistress of angels: hail root, hail door. From whom light has risen for the world: rejoice, glorious virgin, above all comely. Hail, O truly beautiful. And beseech Christ always for us.
Blessed mother and unmarried virgin, glorious queen of the world, intercede for us to the Lord our God, O sweet Mary.
You, Mary, are unviolated, whole and chaste, you have been made the shining gate of heaven. O sweet and most beloved mother of Christ. Receive the pious offering of praises. That our hearts and bodies may be pure: devoted hearts and mouths now beseech you.
Through the things you have prayed for you are most sweet. Give us pardon through the ages. O kind one! O queen! O Mary! You have alone remained inviolate.
You who are an enclosed garden, mother of God, chosen source, arise, make haste, my friend. O sweet Mary.
Sweet mother of the redeemer, who remain the gate of entry to heaven, and the star of the sea, give strength to the falling to rise as one who cares for the people. You who have given birth, as nature looked in wonder, to your holy progenitor, virgin before and after, when Gabriel heard from your mouth that ‘Hail’, have pity on sinners.
Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou amongst women and blessed is the fruit of thy womb. O sweet Mary.
