Title: Quam pulchra es
Composer: John Dunstable
Original text and translations
7:6 Quam pulchra es et quam decora carissima in deliciis
7:7 Statura tua assimilata est palmæ, et ubera tua botris
7:5 caput tuum ut carmelus…
7:4 collum tuum sicut turris eburnea…
7:11 Veni dilecte mi; egrediamur in agrum…
7:12 …et videamus… si flores fructus parturiunt, si floruerunt mala punica. Ibi dabo tibi ubera mea.
How beautiful and fair you are, my beloved,
most sweet in your delights.
Your stature is like a palm-tree,
and your breasts are like fruit.
Your head is like Mount Carmel
and your neck is like a tower of ivory.
Come, my beloved, let us go into the fields
and see if the blossoms have born fruit,
and if the pomegranates have flowered.
There will I give my breasts to you.
