- Edition notes:
Description: This is a contrafact of Vecchi's "Deh lascia Filli i fiori" by Simone Molinaro. Molinaro did not simply fit a sacred text to the music, but transposed it down a fifth, altered the octave for two voices, interchanged some sections between voices, and made some minor adjustments.
Original text and translations
Iam mundi linque vana
Lass fahren nun die Eitelkeiten der Welt,
Relinquish now the vanities of the world,
