It’s our “May Crowning” episode! We’re continuing our celebration of the treasury of devotional songs written in honor of the Blessed Mother with a hybrid show: part interview, part special feature. To help us out, we’re speaking with composer Lorraine Hess about her setting of the “Memorare” prayer. In addition to featuring her song, you’ll hear a wide range of musical selections covering styles from chant to hymnody, from folk songs to contemporary pieces.
So, please open your hymnals!
You can purchase a copy of the score and a copy of the song recording for "The Memorare” from World Library Publications. You can watch a video of the live performance of “The Memorare” at St. Louis Cathedral in New Orleans, Louisiana, on YouTube.
You can also purchase the other song recordings you heard in this episode: “O Queen of the Holy Rosary” (ELLACOMBE, text by Emily Shepcote), “Regina Coeli” (Giuseppo Bernabei), “Ave Maria Litany” (Tom Booth and Jesse Manibusan), “Bring Flowers of the Rarest” (Mary Walsh), “O Maria, Madre Mia” (traditional), “As I Kneel Before You” (Maria Parkinson), “Prayer of Fatima” (Laurence Rosania), “Adios, O Virgen de Guadalupe” (traditional), “O Mary of Graces” (Douglas Hyde), “Mater Ecclesia” (Ricky Manalo), “Woman of God” (Jesse Manibusan).
