The Four Marian Anthems.

The Four Marian Anthems,

Alma Redemptoris Mater

(Sung from the first Sunday of Advent until The Feast of the Presentation, February 2nd)

Alma Redemptoris Mater, quae pervia cael
Porta Manes et Stella Maris, succurre Codenti,
Surgere qui curat, populo: tu quae genuisti,
Natura Mirante, tuum Sanctum Genitorem
Virgo prius ac posterius, Gabrielis abore
Sumens illud Ave peccatorum misere.

Loving Mother of the Redeemer
gate of heaven, star of the sea
assist your people who have fallen yet strive to rise again,
To the wonder of nature you bore your Creator,
yet remained a Virgin after as before.
You received Gabriel's joyful greeting,
have pity on us poor sinners

Ave Regina Caelorum

(sung from the Feast of the Presentation, February 2nd until the Easter vigil)

A-ve Re-gi-na cae-lo-rum, A-ve Do-mi-na
An-ge-lo-rum: Sal-ve-ra-dix, sal-ve por-ta, Ex qua
mun-do lux est or-ta: Gau-de Vir-go glo-ri-o-sa.
Su-per o.mnes spe-ci-os-a, vale, o valde
de-co-ra, Et pro no-bis Chri-stum ex-o-ra.

Hail, O Queen of Heaven
Hail, 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 others,
Farewell, most beautiful maiden,
And pray for us to Christ.

Regina Caeli

(Sung from the Easter Vigil until Pentecost Sunday.)

Regina Caeli, laetare, alleluia; quia quem meruisti
portare, alleluia, resurrexit sicut dixet,
alleluia, ora pro nobis Deum, alleluia.

Queen of Heaven rejoice, alleluia, for He whom Thou
was chosen to bear, alleluia, has risen as He said, alleluia;
pray for us to God, alleluia.

Salve Regina

(Sung from the day after Pentecost Sunday until the first Sunday of Advent)

Salve, Regina, Mater misericordiae
vita, dulcedo, et spes nostra salve
ad te clamamus exsules filii Hevae,
ad te suspiramus gemmentes et flentes
in hac lacrimarum valle

Eia, ergo, advocata nostra, illos tuos
misericordes oculos ad nos converte,
et Jesum, benedictum fructum ventris tui,
nobis post hoc exsilium ostende
O clemens, O pia, O dulcis Virgo Maria

Hail Holy Queen, Mother of Mercy
Hail our life our sweetness and our hope
to Thee we cry poor banished children of Eve
to Thee we send up our sighs, mourning and
weeping in this valley of tears

Turn then O most gracious Advocate, thine
Eyes of mercy towards us, and after this our
exile show us the Blessed Fruit of Thy Womb
Jesus. O clement, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary.
