Edition notes: Transcribed from Bayerische Staatsbibliothek, Mus. ms. B1. Original key and note values. Alto parts are in tenor clef. In the arrangement of the voices we followed the Munich manuscript, so the 4 standard voices are placed on the top and the bottom of the score, respectively, and the three voices which sing a canon are placed in the middle. Although the range of the regular Tenor voice is higher than the voice singing the canon in the Tenor clef, we preferred to keep the three voices singing the canon together.

Edition notes: The piece has been transposed a tone higher to better fit modern, mixed ensembles. The score order of the parts has been rearranged according to range and tessitura. Key signatures, which differ in the original parts, have been unified. Includes a keyboard reduction of the a cappella choral score.

Ave Regina caelorum,
Mater Regis angelorum,
O Maria, flos virginum,
Velut rosa vel lilium.
Funde preces ad Dominum
Pro salute fidelium.
Amen.
