Queen of Heaven, Rejoice - Regina Coeli (Moran)

A new collaboration of Anthony Moran and Richard Schletty. Tony's daughter, Tara Moran (a Broadway stage singer), will sing the song soon, replacing my voice in this demo. Please listen to more "Songs of Faith for Liturgies and Devotions" sung by Tara. Please visit www.catholicliturgyinsong.org – or use the insong.org shortcut.

Which arrangement do you like – v5, v6 or v7? Please comment below.

We will be adding a chorus of voices singing the Alleluias.

"Queen of Heaven, Rejoice - Regina Coeli" is recited during the Easter season instead of the "Angelus."
