Ave Maria variant

    I have programmed an Ave Maria by Rebecca Clarke for SSA voices which includes several unusual phrases. Do you know the source of these? Is there a particular festival for which these variants are appropriate?

    The phrases in questions are: 'Regina coeli, dulcis et pia' and 'ut cum electis te videamus.'

    The full text reads:
    Ave Maria gratia plena,
    Dominus tecum.
    Benedicta tu in mulieribus
    Et benedictus fructus ventris tui, Jesus.
    Sancta Maria, Regina Coeli,
    dulcis et pia, O Mater Dei.
    Ora pro nobis (3X)
    ut cum electis te videamus, te videamus.

    Thank you for your input.
