Description

This setting of Ave Regina cælorum (Hail, O Queen of Heaven), one of the four Marian antiphons with origins in the 4th century, is a joyous work for upper voices, suitable for children’s or women’s choirs. It is full of energy and, although it is largely homophonic, the rhythmic interplay between the parts creates interesting textures which combine with Arnesen’s recognisable, beautiful harmonic language. The jubilant outer sections contrast with a slower, more mysterious middle section where the text speaks of the Virgin Mary’s beauty. A joy to both sing and listen to, this new piece will make an attractive addition to a concert or service.
