One of Wanning's settings of the Song of Solomon from Sacrarum Cantionum, Nuremberg, 1580.
Lyrics: Song of Solomon, ch.2, v.1-5

Ego flos campi et lilium convallium.
Sicut lilium inter spinas sic amica mea inter filias.
Sicut malum inter ligna silvarum,
sic dilectus meus inter filios.
Introduxit me Rex in cellam vinariam ordinavit in me charitatem.
Fulcite me floribus, stipate me malis quia amore langueo.

I am the rose of Sharon and the lily of the valleys.
As the lily among the thorns, so is my love among the daughters.
As the apple tree among the trees of the wood,
so is my beloved among the sons.
He brought me into the cellar of wine, he set in order charity in me.
Stay me up with flowers, compass me about with apples: because I languish with love.
