Movement 1. Largo: Salve regina, mater misericoridiae
Movement 2. Allegro – Larghetto: Ad te clamamus exules, fili Evae
Movement 3. Andante: Eia ergo advocata nostra
Movement 4. Largo: O clemens, o pia
Two of these are settings for soprano of the Salve regina—one in A minor, the other that in C minor, mentioned above. The A minor setting, with its supplicatory text, contains many of the hallmarks of the Stabat mater, including the same style of expressive sensibility, with the wistful sighing ‘Ad te suspiramus’ and a quite beautiful closing ‘O clemens’; but the work also contains contrasting music at the strong ‘Ad te clamamus’.
