Medley: Salve Regina (Hail Holy Queen); Were You There?

Sheet Music; Harp Solo


“Hail Holy Queen enthroned above, O Maria!”

“Were you there when they crucified my Lord?”


A very moving medley of Melchior Ludwig Herold’s 18th-century setting of the ancient prayer by Aimar of La Puy and the American Negro spiritual first published in “Old Plantation Hymns,” Boston, 1899. The two songs together evoke an image of Mary at the foot of the Cross.


This medley may be added to our Old Hymns Medley between “How Great Thou Art” and “Fairest Lord Jesus,” played alone, or followed by “Fairest Lord Jesus,” which is also available as a single piece. All are in the key of D (except the first pieces of the Old Hymns Medley), and these two medleys can be combined in many ways to provide a suitable prelude or Communion music for a variety of Christian occasions.


4 pages (all music), printed on ivory paper; includes the solo for lever or pedal harp and chord symbols; in the key of D with no accidentals. Lower intermediate. $3.50.
