Templars Chant: Salve Regina

As we begin Lent, let us who are knights of the Queen of Heaven, sing Her praise for brining us the grace of doing penance, once again, this year. — This chant is the historical reproduction of the Salve Regina from according to the Rite of Jerusalem, from the time of the Crusaders.
