Regina caeli (Francisco Guerrero)

New York Polyphony sings this beautiful piece, composed by Guerrero (1528-1599) and recorded this past May at the Church of St. Mary the Virgin:

Regina coeli laetare, Alleluia.
Quia quem meruisti portare, Alleluia.
[Iam] Resurrexit sicut dixit, Alleluia.
Ora pro nobis Deum. Alleluia.

Queen of Heaven, rejoice, alleluia.
For He whom you were worthy to bear, alleluia.
[Now] has risen, as He said, alleluia.
Pray for us to God, alleluia.
