Motet for the Feast of the Assumption from Sacrae cantiones quinis vocibus, 1590.
Lyrics: Latin Antiphon

Vidi speciosam sicut columbam ascendentem
desuper rivos aquarum, cuius inaestimabilis
odor erat nimis in vestimentis eius:
et sicut dies verni circumdabant eam
flores rosarum et lilia convallium.

I saw that fair one, like a dove, ascending above
streams of water, their incomparable fragrance
suffusing her garments:
and blooms of roses and lily of the valley surrounded her,
as if on a day in Spring.
