This motet for the feast of the Holy Innocents is from Promptuarii Musici concentus ecclesiasticos, Strassburg, 1622.
Lyrics: Psalm 8, v. 3

Ex ore infantium et lactentium perfecisti laudem propter inimicos tuos, ut destruas inimicum et ultorem.

Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings hast thou ordained strength because of thine enemies, that thou mightest still the enemy and the avenger.
