This composition survives in the sources as a "wedding song", even though the occasion it was written for is not known. It is stylistically close to the Symphoniae sacrae I, sharing its exquisite scoring with the last composition in the set (Bucinate in neomenia tuba/Jubilate Deo) with concertante instrumental parts for cornett and trumpet (or two cornetts). The text, taken from Proverbs, has an opening verse in triple meter which recurs in the middle (shortened) and at the end of the composition in the style of a ritornello, then commonly found in Italy. This verse ends with a characteristically dissonant transition for the upper instrumental parts to the final chord - as the key message of the composition. Score and parts available separately - see item CA.2045300.
