  • CPDL #13498:     
Editor: Nuno Raimundo (submitted 2007-01-27).   Score information: A4, 1 page, 1.23 MB   Copyright: Public Domain
Edition notes: The repetition sign (segno) is the signum congruentiae in the original. It means that the 5th and 6th verses should be repeated from the respective sign (that is: 1,2,3,4,5,5,6, and then "em parir…" again). / In the original manuscript, the syllabes of the lyrics were not arranged for each note. I have done it a way I think it is the best, but it is just my interpretation.

(Early Spanish written with Portuguese spelling)

De gram prision nos quitó
Esta virgem soberana
Em parir esta manhana.
 
Ante saecula creata
La que humilmente se'nclina
Por la vontade divina
Est in coelos elevata.
 
Nostros males nos desató
Esta virgem soberana
Em parir esta manhana.

English.png English translation

She has taken us from a big prision,
This sovereign Virgin,
by giving birth to a child this morning.
 
Created before the centuries,
She who humbly stoops,
By divine will
Has been raised to the heavens.
 
She has untied us from our ills,
This sovereign Virgin,
by giving birth to a child this morning.

Portuguese.png Portuguese translation

De grande prisão nos tirou
Esta virgem soberana
Em parir esta manhã.
 
Criada antes dos séculos,
Aquela que humildemente se enclina,
Por vontade divina
Foi elevada aos céus.
 
Os nossos males nos desatou
Esta virgem soberana
Em parir esta manhã.
