Edition notes: The source (MusicXML) file is zipped. Transcribed from the Trent manuscript tr93. The time signature is missing, the “tempus perfectum” has been assumed from the context. The notes' values are as in the manuscript. The notes' values within the "ligaturæ" are as follows: the left upstemmed notes are semibreves - the unstemmed notes are breves - the right downstemmed note are longæ. The "musica ficta" suggestions are in the MIDI and MusicXML files.

Original text and translations

Latin.png Latin text

(Sanctissime virginis votiva festa recolamus.)

Venerantes hanc diem preclaram omnes concinamus.

Proferat hoc (heæc) concio landes et devotio fuit clara (sit sincera).

(Concrepet organicis modulis et canticis laude digna.)

(Hanc fuisse filiam Cost(antin)i regis unicam, tradunt scripta.)

Annis puerilibus sophisticis artibus fuit clara.

(Turbam philosophicam vicit et rhetoricam disputando.)

Hinc regina credidit, deos vanos respuit disputando (venerari).

(Fit poenalis machina, pereunt ac milia dum rotatur agmina paganorum.)

Mox privatur capite. adsunt turbæ cælicæ. sepelitur vertice montis Syna.

Ora pro populo, precare pro clero, martyr Christi Katherina.

(Astantem populum, laudantem te clerum fove rege per sæcula.)
