Favo(u)rite Regina Coeli Settings?

We are to sing a weekend's services in Ely Cathedral next May. The Sunday wil be Easter 5. We've not yet decided upon a communion motet and the Regina Coeli text would be appropriate, but given the liturgical location (during the receiving of communion) the setting needs to be not too ebullient. Suggestions, anyone? Adults SATB, some divisi OK, organ or a capella.

Regina Caeli Laetare by Robert Lehman - SATB w/ divisi, a cappella (Paraclete Press, PPMO0022)
Lovely setting!
Lucky you, singing in Ely - that was one of my favorite places to sing Evensong when our choir went about 25 years ago - have a blessed trip!

John Hetland's edition of the wonderful Isaac "Regina Coeli" is attached:
A sure favorite- will sound glorious at Ely with a moderate tempo!

There is the "Regina caeli" by Michel-Richard Delalande which is with solists, choir and orchestra. The score is Durand éditions. I conduct my choir for only the second part (SATB and organ), for example an offertory it's enough, wich begins at "ora pro nobis" a very nice lento and after the pretty Alleluia like here
You have qlso the little "Regina caeli" a capella by Aichinger, nice, short and easy.
