Litany of the Blessed Virgin Mary (Litany of Loreto)

Posted by the Sons of the Most Holy Redeemer (the Transalpine Redemptorists), who add:

For the feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe, 12th December, we [the seminarians of the Seminary of the Priestly Fraternity of Saint Peter in Nebraska, including the Redemptorists] made a consecration to Our Lady of Guadalupe, during which we sung this litany. It was composed by a priest of the FSSP Seminary of Wigratzbad, Germany.


  1. Beautiful and devout. Thank you.

    Summorum Pontificum has unleashed a musical renaissance of choirs and scholas of Gregorian chant. Our mass has a reverent choir and if you wish to download its soothing music it can be found at Una Voce Ventura, under "choir".

  3. I was privileged to attend Mass at the Shrine of the Holy House of Loreto on the Feast Day of the Holy Family. It was an immense honor to pray the rosary inside of Our Lady's home. Devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary takes a person to the heart of the Catholic faith.

  4. The Litany was sung absolutely beautifully.

    It brought tears to my eyes.

    Thank you.

    This strikes me as being many young men singing a love song to that most beloved, most pure and most perfect of all Mothers. How sad that most young men in the world today have no idea what real love means. "Send forth Thy Spirit and they shall be created and Thou shalt renew the face of the earth" "Have mercy on Thy people O Lord". Deo gratias for these young men and their vocation.

    Very, very beautiful. The melody sounds a little like Russian Orthodox chant. Thank you, seminarians.

    As an avid fan of chant and sacred music, I bookmarked this page so that I could listen to it later that night. When I finally had time to listen to it I was doing work for my philosophy class and thought I would just use it as background music. However, as I heard the first notes, I put down my work and just listened to it for eight minutes, tears in my eyes and a lump in my throat. The last few days have been hard for me, and this chant really gave me a boost, particularly the "Agnus Dei, qui tollis peccata mundi" at the end. Thank you so much! Sancta Maria, ora pro nobis.
