Hymn to Celebrate the Month of Mary
No doubt lots of you are missing the music and beautiful hymns we would normally sing at Mass. At this time, this is one of the hymns we would usually be singing. Enjoy this opportunity to listen, or sing along, to "Hail Queen of Heaven."
"Hail, Queen of Heaven, the Ocean Star" is a famous Marian hymn that was written by Father John Lingard (1771–1851), a Catholic priest and historian who, through the works of William Cobbett helped to smooth the passage of the Catholic Emancipation Act in England.
