Sunday Music & Salve Regina

Tomás Luis de Victoria (1548-1611), sung by The Sixteen, directed by Harry Christophers.

Salve regina mater misericordiæ
vita dulcedo et spes nostra salve.
Ad te clamamus, exsules filii Hevæ.
Ad te suspiramus, gementes 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 exilium ostende.
O clemens, o pia,
o dulcis Virgo Maria

Hail, holy Queen, mother of mercy;
Hail, our life, our sweetness and our hope.
To you do we cry, poor banished children of Eve.
To you do we send up our sighs,
mourning and weeping
in this our vale of tears.
Turn then, O most gracious advocate,
Your most merciful eyes toward us.
And after this our exile, show unto us,
The blessed fruit of your womb, Jesus.
O clement, o merciful,
O sweet Virgin Mary
