The use of musica ficta in this piece (just as in many of Palestrina's works, and unlike e.g. in Lasso's pieces) is far from straightforward. Among the recordings of this piece rather differing realisations of musica ficta can be found. This regards primarily - but is not confined to - the B flat/natural in the opening motif (genae tuae), the B flat/natural in the motif Collum tuum.

Latin.png Latin text

Pulchrae sunt genae tuae sicut turturis,
collum tuum sicut monilia.
Murenulas aureas faciemus tibi
vermiculatas argento.
Dum esset rex in accubitu suo,
nardus mea dedit odorem suavitatis.

English.png English translation

Thy cheeks are beautiful as the turtledove's,
thy neck as jewels.
We will make thee chains of gold,
inlaid with silver.
While the king was at his repose,
my spikenard sent forth the odour thereof.

Dutch.png Dutch translation

Prachtig zijn je wangen, als van een tortelduif.
Je hals is als een parelsnoer.
Laten wij voor jou kettingen maken van goud
ingelegd met stukjes zilver.
[Zij:]
Zolang de koning op zijn rustbed lag
verspreidde mijn nardusolie zijn lieflijke geur.
