The Captive Queen An opera based on the last days of Mary Queen of Scots imprisonment in Derbyshire.
Music by Les Emmans. Words: Traditional Ave Maria plus actual prayer written by Mary Stuart. Copyright Les Emmans 1989.
Mary has just been informed that she is to be executed. She knows that her Catholic Faith is seen by Queen Elizabeth as a major threat, hence the execution. Mary prays to the Virgin in an Ave Maria but includes her own prayers in old French.She is joined by her maidservant Jane and other members of her staff.
