Hail Holy Queen

Greetings! We're back with another song for you, this one in honor of and to get you in the mood for tomorrow's Feast of the Assumption of Mary.

I did this track back in November of 2003 and at the time some folks felt that the melody of the hymn was not represented enough to justify the title. Maybe they're right. Or maybe, just maybe, the piece is meant to be evocative of the hymn in some other way than as a strict representation of it. Who knows.

NOTE: This song is now available on the new "Phreakbox v1.4: The Instrumentals" album (as "H.H.Q.", available for download from Amazon MP3, Lala.com, and available soon from iTunes and Rhapsody and on Audio CD.
