Motet Translations

Heinrich Schütz: "Anima mea," SWV 263-4, Symphoniae Sacrae I

Song of Solomon: 5:6; 2:14; 5:13; 5:8

Tenor I, Tenor II

Anima mea liquefacta est, ut dilectus locutus est,
Vox enim eius dulcis, et facies eius decora.
Labia eius lilia stillantia myrrham primam.

Adiuro vos, filiae Hierusalem,
Si inveneritis dilectum meum,
Un nuntietis ei, quia amore langueo.

My soul melted when my beloved spoke;
For his voice is sweet, and his face is lovely.
His lips are lilies dripping liquid myrrh.

I adjure you, daughters of Jerusalem,
If you meet my beloved,
Let him know that I languish with love.
