    From Feb 2 (Candlemas day) to the Wednesday in Holy Week the traditional hymn to our lady is the Ave Regina Caelorum. For those who want to join in the hymn sung during the Office at Vespers and Compline, (Liturgy of the Hours) I’ve posted it below in English and Latin. Thankfully you can’t hear me sing the melody out of tune.

    [b:3bvzbaz4][u:3bvzbaz4]Hail, O Queen of Heaven[/u:3bvzbaz4][/b:3bvzbaz4]

    Welcome, O Queen of Heaven.
    Welcome, O Lady of Angels
    Hail! thou root, hail! thou gate
    From whom unto the world, a light has arisen:

    Rejoice, O glorious Virgin,
    Lovely beyond all others,
    Farewell, most beautiful maiden,
    And pray for us to Christ.

    V. Allow me to praise thee, O sacred Virgin.
    R. Against thy enemies give me strength.

    Grant unto us, O merciful God, a defense against our weakness, that we who remember the holy Mother of God, by the help of her intercession, may rise from our iniquities, through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.

    [i:3bvzbaz4][u:3bvzbaz4]Ave, Regina Caelorum [/u:3bvzbaz4][/i:3bvzbaz4]

    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 Christum exora.

    V. Dignare me laudare te, Virgo sacrata.
    R. Da mihi virtutem contra hostes tuos.

    Oremus. Concede, misericors Deus, fragilitati nostrae praesidium: ut, qui sanctae Dei Genitricis memoriam agimus; intercessionis eius auxilio, a nostris iniquitatibus resurgamus. Per eundem Christum Dominum nostrum. Amen.
