Heavenly Music for a Hellish World: Salt Lake Vocal Artists Sing “Ave Regina Coelorum”

Re-posted by Nicholas Stix

Note the camera work. Nothing flashy, but tastefully done, just like the performance, and I believe two or three cameras at work.

“Ave Regina Coelorum”


Salt Lake Vocal Artists
Published on Aug 3, 2014

The Salt Lake Vocal Artists perform "Ave Regina Coelorum" by Philip WJ Stopford live in concert on February 21, 2014 in the Granada Theater, under the direction of Dr. Brady Allred.

This concert was part of the Western Division conference of the American Choral Directors Association (ACDA) in Santa Barbara California at which the Salt Lake Vocal Artists were invited to perform.

Latin Text:

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.

English translation:

Hail, O Queen of Heaven enthroned.
Hail, by angels mistress owned.
Root of Jesse, Gate of Morn
Whence the world's true light was born:
Glorious Virgin, Joy to thee,
Loveliest whom in heaven they see;
Fairest thou, where all are fair,
Plead with Christ our souls to spare.
