Notes de programme :
On August 21, 1879 the Virgin Mary, St. Joseph and St. John the Evangelist appeared in glowing light at the south gable of Knock Parish Church in county Mayo, Ireland. Two women while walking home discovered the three figures. The Virgin did not say anything, as in other apparitions, but stood with her hands raised looking toward heaven wearing a white cloak and a large crown. St. Joseph and St. John were on either side of her and were also wearing white. St. John had a book and appeared to be preaching. The two women who found the apparition were so shocked that they went to get other witnesses. In total, fifteen individuals, both young and old, saw it. Witnesses stood for two hours in the rain praying the rosary. The site of the apparition now houses a modern church and millions of people visit the site to pray and be healed. Among the first visitors in the 1880s was Archbishop John Joseph Lynch of Toronto who claimed that the Virgin of Knock had cured his gout. He returned several times and testified of the site's healing powers to the Vatican.
The Salve Regina (Hail holy Queen) is a common prayer in the Catholic Church dating back almost one thousand years. In addition to the many settings of the prayer to music, including Gregorian chants, it is one of the final prayers of the rosary and one of the few prayers in the rosary that is said once, and not repeated.
English translation of the Salve Regina:
Hail holy Queen, Mother of Mercy,
Our life, our sweetness and our hope.
To thee do we cry, poor banished children of Eve;
To thee do we send up our sighs,
Mourning and weeping in this valley of tears.
Turn then, most gracious advocate,
Thine eyes of mercy toward us;
And after this our exile,
Show unto us the blessed fruit of thy womb, Jesus.
O clement, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary.
Pray for us O holy Mother of God,
That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.
This setting of the Salve Regina combines an original air and reel written in a traditional Irish folk style for flute and/or violin with a classical women's chorus to capture the ethereal nature and awe of the apparition at Knock. The air and reel portray the everyday earthly life of Ireland while the choir captures the wonders of the heavenly apparition using an ancient prayer.
