The great seasonal Marian antiphons are four beautiful and ancient prayers to the Blessed Virgin Mary. They come from the Divine Office, office of Compline, the last of the sung hours of the day; and they are said or sung immediately before going to sleep.
The Marian antiphons are “seasonal” because they shift according to the liturgical seasons of the year. Each of the four also has a simple tone Gregorian melody that accompanies the Latin text.
When sung at the conclusion of Mass, only the anthem is sung, the anthem is in bold text.

Ave Regina Caelorum The Ave Regina Caelorum is sung from Candlemas Day (the Feast of the Presentation, February 2) through Wednesday of Holy Week (the Wednesday before Easter).
Regina Caeli The Regina Caeli is sung throughout Eastertide, from Easter Day through Pentecost, the seventh Sunday after Easter.
Salve Regina The Salve Regina is sung from the day after Pentecost Sunday until the first Sunday of Advent.
