Engl. Trans   (Dufay)  Vergine bella

Beautiful virgin,
dressed by the sun,
crowned with stars
you pleased the highest sun so much,
that it set alight a light within you.
Love forces me to speak of you,
but I do not know how to begin,
without your help and the help of him,
who entered within you in his love.
I call out to you, who was always
merciful to all believers.
O virgin, who never turned away
from human misery,
hear my prayer, hasten to help me,
even if I am on earth
and you are the Queen of Heaven.
