Hail! blessed virgin Mary

author of text

This delightful choral miniature is built on an Italian melody from a collection called Corona di sacre Canzoni o Laude Spirituali, published in Florence in 1689. It comes from An Italian Carol Book (1920), one of several significant collections of carols and hymns co-edited by Wood (Stanford’s successor as Professor of Music at Cambridge University) and Woodward, an Anglican clergyman and antiquarian.
