By Special Request

My friend (if I may so presume) the Part Time Pilgrim has suggested that I put the Latin and English texts of the Regina Caeli (prepared in <140 character groups for #twitterangelus)  and the Youtube link on the same page, so that he can sing along as he prays and tweets.

That seems a good idea to me, so here we go.

BTW this weekend I hope to start to post some introductory explanations of Liturgical Latin, so if that may be of interest, keep an eye out for them, too.

Regina Caeli: first the Gregorian Chant, then the arrangement by Gregor Aichinger.

Leader's text in normal, and responses in bold

In nomine Patris et Filii + et Spiritus Sancti  #twitterangelus

Amen  #twitterangelus

Regina caeli, laetare, Alleluia: #twitterangelus
