Motet for use on the Feast day of St Michael the Archangel from Promptuarii musici (vol. 3), 1613.
Lyrics: Anon

Factum est praelium magnum in caelo.
Michael et angeli eius praeliabantur cum dracone,
et draco et angeli eius cum eis.
Et non praevaluerunt.
Clamaveruntque omnes cum Michaele archangelo: "victoria".

A great battle was fought in heaven.
Michael and his angels engaged with the dragon,
and the dragon and his angels with them.
Yet they did not prevail.
And all those with archangel Michael shouted: "Victory".
