Ordinary Time: Salve Regina - Peter Philips

To mark the beginning of  'Ordinary Time,'  a setting by the Tudor composer Peter Philips of the traditional Marian anthem for the end of compline.

Sung by The Tudor Consort, directed by Peter Wallis

We've remarked before about the abrupt transition after Pentecost from Eastertide to Ordinary Time in the modern calendars - we have from the Ascension to pray for and anticipate the gift of the Holy Spirit to the Church at Pentecost,  but only have a day in which to celebrate and reflect upon it in the liturgy. 
'Fr Hunwicke's' (Tufton Books / Church Union) Ordo suggests a way of recapturing the spirit (sorry) of the old  Octave of Pentecost, at least as regards the daily mass.
