The great seasonal Marian antiphons are four beautiful and ancient prayers to the Blessed Virgin Mary. They come from
the Divine Office, office of Compline, the last of the sung
hours of the day; and they are said or sung immediately
before going to sleep.
The Marian antiphons are “seasonal” because they shift
according to the liturgical seasons of the year. Each of the four
also has a simple tone Gregorian melody that accompanies
the Latin text.
When sung at the conclusion of Mass, only the anthem is
sung, the anthem is in bold text.

Feast of the Presentation, February 2) through Wednesday of
Holy Week (the Wednesday before Easter).
The Regina Caeli is sung throughout Eastertide, from Easter
Day through Pentecost, the seventh Sunday after Easter.
The Salve Regina is sung from the day after Pentecost Sunday
until the first Sunday of Advent.
