From Liber sacrarum cantionum, Venice, 1589.
Lyrics: Anon

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

I saw the fair one rising like a dove above the streams of water:
whose priceless fragrance clung to her garments.
And as on a spring day, she was surrounded by roses and lily-of-the-valley.
