Cantantibus organis, Caecilia virgo
in corde suo soli Domino decantabat, dicens:
Fiat, Domine, cor meum et corpus meum immaculatum,
ut non confundar. (St. Cecilia, Matins Responsory)

While the instruments were played, the virgin Cecilia
sang in her heart to the Lord alone, saying:
May my heart and my body be immaculate,
O Lord, that I be not ashamed.
Translation by St Ann choir
