about

One of four Marian Antiphons, dating at least to the 12th century.

lyrics

Ave Regina cælorum,
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 Christum exora.

============
TRANSLATION
============

Hail, Queen of Heaven,
Hail, mistress of Angels:
Hail root! Hail portal!
Out of whom the light of the world arose.
Joy, glorious Virgin,
Lovely above all,
Farewell, O most virtuous,
And for us entreat Christ.

(translation by Donna Stewart)
