Text heard on Sample:

Cecilia Virgo, tuas laudes universa concinit musicorum turba,
et tuis meritis supplices a Deo exaudiri possint.
Juncta voce et uno corde tuum nomen invocant,
ut luctum mundi in paradisi gloriam mutare digneris;
tuosque pupilos, tutelaris Virgo, aspicere velis,
piam Dominam, inclamantes, et semper dicentes:
Sancta Cecilia, ora pro nobis.

O virgin Cecilia, the worldwide multitude of musicians sings your praises,
and through your merits, supplicants may be heard by God.
With one voice and a single heart they call upon your name,
that you may be worthy of turning the mourning of the world into the glory of paradise;
and may you be willing, O protecting Virgin, to look upon your orphans,
who call upon Our Lady most merciful, forever saying:
Holy Cecilia, pray for us

Anon, medieval
