Music For Lent, 2016 (Day 9)

The fourth Rheinberger hymn, "Ave Regina coelorum." It's probably my favorite of the bunch. There's something about Mary that just brings out the best in everyone, isn't there?

Ave Regina coelorum,
Ave Domina Angelorum:
Salve radix, salve porta,
Ex qua mundo lux est orta:

Hail, O Queen of Heav'n enthron'd,
Hail, by angels Mistress own'd
Root of Jesse, Gate of morn,
Whence the world's true light was born.
