One of Wanning's settings of the Song of Solomon from Sacrarum Cantionum, Nuremberg, 1580.
Lyrics: Song of Solomon, ch.4, v.9,10

Vulnerasti cor meum, soror mea, sponsa: vulnerasti cor meum
in uno oculorum tuorum et in uno crine colli tui.
Quam pulchrae sunt mammae tuae soror mea sponsa,
pulchriora sunt ubera tua vino et odor unguentorum tuorum
super omnia aromata.

Thou hast ravished my heart, my sister, my spouse: thou hast ravished my heart
with one of thine eyes, with one hair of thy neck.
How beautiful are thy breasts, my sister, my spouse.
Thy breasts are more beautiful than wine, and the sweet smell of thy ointments
above all aromatical spices.
