About the work
‘Salve Regina’ forms the third piece in an ongoing cycle for double choir. Entitled ‘Ave Maria’, the cycle is a series of works celebrating the Holy Mother. The first piece in the cycle is ‘Ave Maria’ (composed in 2002) and the second is ‘Ave Maris Stella’ (2003). The composer hopes to complete the cycle with two further works ‘Ave Regina caelorum’ and ‘Regina caeli’.
