Motet for St Cecilia's Day from Quartus Tomus Musici Operis, Prague, 1590.
Lyrics: Anon

Dum aurora finem daret,
beata Cæcilia dixit:
Eia, milites Christi,
abjicite opera tenebrarum
et induimini arma lucis.

Cæcilia, valedicens fratribus
et exhortans eos, ait:
Eia, milites Christi,
abjicite opera tenebrarum
et induimini arma lucis.

As dawn came to an end,
Cecilia cried out, saying:
"Huzza, soldiers of Christ,
cast away the works of darkness
and don the armour of light".

Bidding the brothers farewell,
and encouraging them, Cecilia said:
"Huzza, soldiers of Christ,
cast away the works of darkness
and don the armour of light".
