Deo gracias  
Der Falke  
Ditelo, o fiumi, e voi ch'udiste Glauco

Hebt ein Falke sich empor  
Hodie Christus natus est  
I sing of a maiden  
In freezing winter night  
Incenerite spoglie, avara tomba  
Jauchzet, frohlocket, auf, preiset die Tage  
Ma te raccoglie, o ninfa, in grembo 'l cielo  
Movete al mio bel suon le piante snelle  
O chiome d'or, neve gentil del seno  
O my deare hert, young Jesu sweit  
Ohimè il bel viso, ohimè il soave sguardo, SV112 (Monteverdi)

Zefiro torna e 'l bel tempo rimena, SV108 (Monteverdi)
