Programme Note
Judith Weir Ave Regina Caelorum (2014)
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.

    Benjamin Nicholas
“one of the Master of the Queen’s Music’s most immediately approachable choral works” [...] “it is precisely this gentle confounding of our expectations and enforced honing of our critical faculties that makes Judith Weir the remarkable composer that she is.”
Jeremy Summerly, Choir and Organ,01/11/2014
