Quanta beltà quanta gratia e splendore
Si vidde in donna mai, Si vidde in donna mai,
Vaga Angloletta tutt’ il ciel vidiede
Quant’ alta cortessia quanto valore
Regno in donna gia mai, gia mai
Tutt in voi regna con pietate e sede
tai che chiumque vivede
Dice chei bei sembienti vostri
I divia occhi, i divia occhi
il bel volto e le chiome
D’Angela son insieme col bel nome.
