Marian Antiphon for Easter
The "Regina Coeli" is one of the four seasonal antiphons of the Blessed Virgin Mary prescribed to be sung or recited in the Easter Season. The "Regina Coeli" is a twelfth-century antiphon for Evening Prayer during the Easter Season. Since the thirteenth century, it has been used as the seasonal antiphon in honor of the Blessed Virgin after Night Prayer. udayton.edu/mary/resources/antiph3.html
