Beautiful Marian Easter Hymn

I always enjoy watching the Papal Masses, especially during Easter time. Here is the Sistene Chapel Choir's rendition of the Regina Caeli at the end of the Easter Sunday Papal Mass.

  1. I love this chant (sung straight through 0:00 - 0:43)! We recently learned this in my schola, and I've been using it after compline every night this week, and I hope to for the rest of Easter.

    In my humble opinion, it is one of the simplest, yet most beautiful chants we have. How fitting that one of our most beautiful chants is dedicated to our Blessed Mother.

    I have to admit that semi-polyphonic ending (starting at 0:44) is pretty awesome too!! I would love to hear that sung next easter during *our* recessional.

    Another cool thing about this video is at 0:09 when the african MC starts mouthing with the choir.

    Ha! And they say people don't sing when it's in Latin.
