This is a live recording of “O Queen of the Holy Rosary” hymn set to the beautiful Ellacombe tune in celebration of Laetare Sunday at St Patrick’s, Albury. This hymn is a powerful expression of our devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary and the Holy Rosary, a centerpiece of Catholic prayer and faith.
“O Queen of the Holy Rosary” is a hymn that honors the Blessed Virgin Mary, who has a special place in the hearts of the faithful. The text emphasises her role as a loving intercessor and the importance of meditating on the mysteries of Christ’s life, this hymn is a profound reminder of the spiritual benefits of praying the Holy Rosary.
The Ellacombe hymn tune, originating from Germany in the 18th century, is known for its uplifting melody and strength, adding depth and fervor to the words of the hymn. In this recording, we have combined the “O Queen of the Holy Rosary” with the Ellacombe tune to create a unique and moving rendition.
Laetare Sunday, also known as the Fourth Sunday of Lent, is a day of rejoicing and hope in the midst of the penitential season. The term “Laetare” comes from the Latin word for “rejoice,” marking this Sunday as a time to briefly lift the solemnity of Lent in anticipation of the joyous Resurrection of Christ on Easter.
The final verse features Noel Rawsthorne’s alternate harmony of the ELLACOMBE hymn tune and is available below.
