Learning to Chant the Salve Regina Before Bed

Blessed Jordan of Saxony introduced the custom of chanting the Salve Regina after Compline before bed. The Salve Regina is chanted today by monks and nuns after Compline from Trinity Sunday until Advent.
Learning to chant the Salve Regina is the easiest entry into the classic Latin hymns. The Salve Regina includes traditional chant and Latin into your devotional life. It is also a wonderful gift to your children if you chant it every night after praying family Rosary. Children pick it up quickly. Our four-year-old learned it quickly.

The Salve Regina was once attributed to Saint Bernard, but is now commonly attributed to Blessed Herman the Cripple (died 1054). The Glories of Mary by St Alphonsus Liguori, a book I cannot recommend enough, is a commentary on the Salve Regina.
