This is a joyful piece in celebration of the long life of a friend of mine. The first part of each line should be sung quite freely, in plainchant style, and just a little faster than the tutti sections; the note durations given for these plainchant sections are just a guide. Throughout the piece, please allow a little space between phrases.
A recording by Rudsambee company of singers is available on their album bottled at source (RUBEECD003).

Regina Coeli
Regina coeli laetare! Alleluia
Quia quem meruisti portare, Alleluia
Resurrexit sicut dixit; Alleluia
Ora pro nobis Deum; Alleluia

Queen of the heavens, rejoice! Alleluia
For He whom you were worthy to bear, Alleluia
Has risen as He said, Alleluia
Pray for us to God, Alleluia!
