Beata cujus (Binicum VII) , Orlando di Lasso
Lyric: Verse six from Vexilla Regis by Venatius Fortunatus (530-609)
Written in honor of the arrival of a large relic of the True Cross which had been sent to Queen Radegunda by the Emperor Justin II and his Empress Sophia.

Original Latin text English translation Ungefärlig, översättning
     
Beata, cuius brachiis
pretium pependit saeculi:
statera facta corporis,
praedam tulit(que) tartari.
Blest Tree, whose happy branches bore
the wealth that did the world restore;
the beam that did that Body weigh
which raised up Hell's expected prey.
Välsigna trädet vars lyckliga grenar bar
det storslagna som återställde världen;
bjälken som bar upp vikten av Kroppen
som besvärjer Helvetes förväntade byte.
