Marian Hymns

Here's one of my absolute favorites:

"Make merry, and be glad: for this thy brother was dead, and is come to life again; he was lost, and is found."

I'm a fan of the Dominican Salve... 

Wie dein Sonntag, so dein Sterbetag.

Awesome. 

Have you read about the Salve procession and its origins

Quote
Since the time of St. Bernard, the Salve Regina (Hail Holy Queen) has been sung by religious in monasteries throughout the world in honor of the Blessed Mother. In 1221, very soon after the death of St. Dominic, Bl. Jordan of Saxony instituted a procession after Compline, which was to accompany the singing of the Salve. This was done in response to a crisis in the community. In Bologna at this time, several Dominican houses were having trouble with assaults from the devil, and a certain brother by the name of Bernard was suffering acutely. His difficulty caused disturbance to the whole community. It was decided to invoke the aide of our Heavenly Mother. The Salve was thereafter sung in procession, seeking the Blessed Mother’s special protection. Immediately, peace was restored to the monastery. The practice of the Salve procession spread rapidly to other Dominican houses, as well as to other religious orders in the Church.

My favorite hymn. I only like to sing Salve Regina after Mass, don't know why.

Yes, the sisters would process through the cloisters and back into the choir, singing this and "O Lumen Ecclesiae," and then the Prioress would bless them. It's such a beautiful tradition.  :)

The O Lumen is so beautiful.

My favorite as well. I recently spent time at a Russian Orthodox monastery and they actually chant this after Compline. It is a tradition that the current abbot started.

"Let all bitterness and animosity and indignation and defamation be removed from you, together with every evil. And become helpfully kind to one another, inwardly compassionate, forgiving among yourselves, just as God also graciously forgave you in the Anointed." – Paul

An ominous dream.
