Ave Regina Celorum / Mater innocentie

Language: Latin

 Ave regina celorum, pia virgo tenella
 Maria candens flos florum Christique clausa cella
 Gracia que peccatorum dira abstulit bella
 Plena odore unguentorum, stirpis David puella
 Dominus rex angelorum te gignit lucens stella
 Tecum manens ut nostrorum tolleret seva tela
 Benedicta mater morum, nostre mortis medela
 Tu signatus fons ortorum manna das dulcis cela
 In te lucet lux cunctorum, quo promo de te mella
 Mulieribus tu chorum regis dulci viella
 Et vincula delictorum frangis nobis rebella
 Benedictus futurorum ob nos potatus fella
 Fructus dulcis quo iustorum clare sonat cimella
 Ventris sibi parat thorum, nec in te corruptella
 Tui zelo fabris horum languescat animella

 Mater innocencie 
 Aula venustatis
 Rosa publicicie
 Cella deitatis
 Vera lux mundicie
 Manna probitatis
 Porta obediencie
 Arca pietatis
 Datrix indulgencie
 Virga puritatis
 Arbor fructus gracie
 Nostre pravitalis
 Virtus tue clemencie
 Me solvat a peccatis

 Ite missa est

Note: The texts contains two acrostics: the first words of each line of the triplum form the Ave Maria, and the first letters of each line of the duplum show the name of the author (Marcum Paduanum).
