Track Name: Flos florum
Translation: "Flower of flowers, fountain of gardens, queen of the Heavens,
hope of pardon, light of joy, remedy of sorrows.
fresh branch and seemly virgin, model of goodness:
spare the guilty and bring them a reward in the peace of the righteous,
feed your own, succour your own, have mercy upon your own. "
Track Name: Friling
English translation:
"I roam through the ghetto from alley to alley,
And I cannot find any haven;
My beloved is not here, how can I bear it?
Oh, people, at least say something.
The blue sky illuminates my home
But what benefit do I have from it now?
I stand like a beggar at each gate,
And beg for a little bit of sunshine.

Springtime, dispel my sorrow,
And bring back my beloved, my adored one to me.
Springtime, on your blue wings,
Oh, take my heart with you and return joy to it.

[…] This year springtime came very early,
And my longing blossomed for you once again,
I see you before me all laden with flowers,
Happily you come to me.
The sun showered the garden with its rays,
The earth has sprouted its green.
My adored one, my darling, where have you gone?
You are never out of my mind.

Springtime, dispel my sorrow…"
Track Name: All Things Are Quite Silent
All things are quite silent, each mortal at rest,
As me and my true love was snug in one nest.
A bold set of ruffians they entered into our cave,
And forced my dear jewel to plough the salt wave.

I begged for my sailor as I'd begged for my life.
But they'd not listen to me although a fond wife,
Saying, “The king must have sailors, to the seas he must go.”
And they left me lamenting in sorrow and woe.

Through green fields and meadows we oft times did walk,
And with sweet conversations of love we did talk,
While the birds in the woodland so sweetly did sing,
And the young thrushes' voices made the valleys to ring.

Though my love has left me I'll not be cast down.
Who knows but some day my love might return?
And will make me amends for my sorrow and strife,
And me and my true love will be happy for life.
