Programme Note
Tarik O'Regan Tu claustra stirpe regia (O Thou, from regal ancestry) from Sequence for St Wulfstan (2003)
Latin text sourced from MS 391, p. 265: Cambridge, Corpus Christi College (the Portiforium of St Wulfstan)
Translation: T. O'Regan

For CANDLEMAS or MARIAN FEASTS (also ROYAL OCCASIONS)

Tu claustra stirpe regia
iureque mundi domina,
desideratum omnibus
tu pertulisti gentibus.

O stella maris fulgida,
absolve plebis crimina,
Fletus quoque supplicum
inmutando gaudium.
Amen.


O Thou, from regal ancestry,
And rightful worldly sovereign,
Brings forth unto all nations wide,
That by which all seek to abide.

O Thou, the glowing star of sea,
Whose people freed from tyranny,
Do grant the supplicants this night,
Their weeping changed into delight.
Amen.
