Liturgical Hints & Ideas

The month of May is an opportunity to explore the Marian influence on music and liturgy. Many great pieces exist which recognize Mary within the context of the Easter season. Paramount among these is the Latin text Regina coeli lætare (Queen of heaven, rejoice). Use this in its various forms: chant, choral, organ, hymn (note modern translation, "Be Joyful, Mary").
