One of a collection of settings from the Song of Solomon from Promptuarii musici (vol. 3), 1613. Offered at original pitch for S.S.S.A.A.T.B. or transposed down a fourth for A.A.T.T.T.B.B.
Lyrics: Song of Solomon, ch.1, v.1,2

Osculetur me osculo oris sui:
quia meliora sunt ubera tua vino.
Fragrantia unguentis optimis oleum effusum nomen tuum,
ideo adulescentulae dilexerunt te.

Let him kiss me with the kisses of his mouth:
for thy love is better than wine.
Because of the savour of thy good ointments thy name is as ointment poured forth,
therefore do the virgins love thee.
