Queen on Whose Starry Brow Doth Rest is a translation by Monsignor Ronald A. Knox (1888 - 1957) of a hymn by Venantius Fortunatus (c.530-c.600). In the Divine (1974) it is among the selected hymns sung with the Common of the Blessed Virgin Mary. The recommended musical setting in the Office is the 1628 tune: Eisenach by the early Baroque composer, Johann Hermann Schein (1586-1630).

Tune: Eisenach
