Lyrics: Sirach ch.32, v.7,8

Gemma carbunculi in ornamento auri,
et comparatio musicorum in convivio vini.
Sicut in fabricatione auri signum est Smaragdi,
sic numerus musicorum in iucundo et moderato vino.

A concert of musick in a banquet of wine is as a signet of carbuncle set in gold.
As a signet of an emerald set in a work of gold, so is the melody of musick with pleasant wine.
