“Hail Queen of Heaven” is a Marian hymn written by Father John Lingard (1771–1851), a Catholic priest and historian who, through the works of William Cobbett, helped to smooth the passage of the Catholic Emancipation Act in England. Lingard is also credited with translating the carol “The Snow Lay on the Ground” from the traditional Irish.

Loosely based on the medieval Latin plainchant Ave Maris Stella, ‘Hail Queen of Heaven’ is generally sung to the modified traditional English melody Stella. This melody, was published in 1851 by Henri Frederick Hemy in his “Easy Hymn Tunes for Catholic Schools“. The name Stella comes from the village of that name near Newcastle-upon-Tyne where Hemy was the organist in a local church. According to one account, after playing the organ for evening benediction on Sunday at Stella, he called into the (old) Board Inn at the foot of Stella Lane with some companions and seated at the piano first played his rendition of the tune.
