Ben Rowarth's 'Regina caeli' (for SAT voices) and Libby Croad's 'To the Immaculate Heart of Mary', which was commissioned for this disc, sets an anonymous 19th-century text published in Volume I of the Carmelite Review of August 1892. The earliest music in the program is the Solemn tone plainsong 'Salve Regina'.

Hildegard of Bingen's own mesmerizing, flowing plainsong in 'O viridissima virga' is sung by the women's voices. From Tudor England, Robert Parsons' setting of 'Ave Maria' concludes with an Amen of exquisite beauty, considered to be one of the finest passages of music composed in the 16th Century. The same 'Ave Maria' text is subtly combined with that of W B Yeats' poem 'The Mother of God' in the vivid and powerful 'Mater Dei' by Sarah Rimkus. The seven-part setting of 'Ego flos campi' by Jacobus Clemens non Papa is full of sumptuous choral counterpoint, and an equally sonorous effect is accomplished in the rich contemporary harmonies of Eva Ugalda's setting for men's voices of 'Ave maris stella'.

Jan Sandstrom surrounds Michael Praetorius's 'Est ist ein Ros entsprungen' with clustered chords and creates an atmosphere of stillness around the wintry words. Orlande de Lassus' double-choir, eight-part 'Alma redemptoris mater' brings the programme, which also includes works by Taverner, Lobo, Padilla and Britten, to a musically thrilling conclusion.

The recording venue was the compact but resonant chapel of Downing College, Cambridge.
