Feast of the Assumption

Happy Feast!

Also a good excuse to include a solemn 'Salve Regina' in Honour of Our Blessed Lady. I rather like this version in 'organum' style - an early form of polyphony.


  1. My favourite Salve Regina, also.

    Whenever I hear this, I get goose-bumps all over and feel a great need to put Chain-Mail on !!!

  2. Zephy,

    I concur. These Templar chants, like those of St. Hildegard von Bingen, always send chills down my spine.

    Talking of Templars and smililar, there is possily quite a case for revival of some of the medieval Military Religious Orders. With current news of Christians being attacked and churches burnt in various parts of the world, I could see a role for soldier-monks in protecting pilgrims and refugees.
