Edition notes: From the Eton Choirbook (MS 1490-1502). Our source: Collected Works, volume 2, edited by Edwin B. Warren (volume 17 of Corpus Mensurabilis Musicae), American Institute of Musicology, 1964. We have raised the original notation a tone and halved time values. The ligatures of the MS are not indicated in the Warren edition. Flats in the MS (C naturals here) that are also in the key signature are given here in parentheses. We have imposed regular bar lines and inserted rests at the ends of some sections to compensate. Translation, text underlay, emendations (see last page) and musica ficta by John Hetland and The Renaissance Street Singers. 1/5/97.

Salve Regina, Mater Misericordiae,
Vita, dulcedo, et spes nostra, Salve!
Ad te clamamus, exsules filii [H]evae,
Ad te suspiramus, gementes et flentes,
In hac lacrimarum valle.
Eja ergo, Advocata nostra,
Illos tuos misericordes oculos ad nos converte
Et Jesum, benedictum fructum ventris tui,
Nobis, post hoc exilium, ostende.

Virgo mater ecclesiae,
Aeterna porta glorias,
Esto novia refugium
Apud Patrem et Filium.
O clemens! virgo clemens,
virgo pia, virgo dulcis, O Maria:
Exaudi preces omnium
Ad te pia clamantium
O pia!

Funde preces tuo nato
Crucifixo, vulnerato,
Et pro nobis flagellato
Spinis puncto, felle potato,
O dulcis Maria, salve.
