From Florete prata, Frondete lilia

C major

Latin text

E Gridietur de libano sponsus, ut pascatur in hortis.
Currite, austri, turbine fluido,
Solvite pennas, murmure placido.
Et viridantibus umbris, Et ventilantibus auris,
Advolate, Secundate, Germinate, Fæcundate, Grata inter nemora.
& dilecto ventilate, blanda inter agmina.
