The “Singing at Dawn” was a widespread custom all over the Christian world. Neither its origin nor its introduction in Alava can be exactly stated.
The “Saying of the Rosary at Dawn” takes place during the novenas in honour of the “Virgin of the Kings” from the 7 th to 15 th of September respectively.
The saying is preceded by the delivery of some verses. These verses honour the Virgin and are an invitation or call for the “Saying of the Rosary”.
