Ista est speciosa
inter filias Iherusalem
Viderunt eam filiæ Syon,
et beatissimam prædicaverunt,
et reginæ faciem eius laudaverunt.

Costei è magnifica
fra le figlie di Gerusalemme
La videro le figlie di Sion,
e la proclamarono beatissima,
e le regine lodarono la sua avvenenza.

Motti del “Pleni”

Tenor
'Io che un tempo scrissi carmi con vigoroso slancio'

Tenor secondo

She is magnificent
among the daughters of Jerusalem.
The Zion's daughters saw her,
and declared her very blessed,
and the queens praised her attractiveness.
