Here is another feast-day hymn for the Mother of God – this one for the feast of her Protection (Patronage), on October 1. It can also be sung throughout the year.
Here is version in the Marian Hymnal (1984), with only slight notational changes:
And here is the Slavonic.
Thinking about organization, I am currently planning to put all the hymns to the Mother of God in a single section, with the exception of those for Holy Week (the Mother of God at the Cross). In the section for hymns of the liturgical year, there will be pointers at each Marian feast to particular hymns which might be especially appropriate.
Thoughts or suggestions?
