'This song, I have heard say,
Is to salute Our Blessed Lady; She
Will hear us when we tun to her and pray
For help and comfort on our dying day....' (Chaucer 172)
What does the song O Alma Redemptoris symbolize? Is it appropriate for the tale? How does the song relate to the Prioress and her prayer in  her portrait?
