Ave Regina caeloram
Hail, queen of heaven. Hail, Lady of the angels. Have pity on thy servant Dufay, that his sins may be cast into the blazing fires. Prosper, holy branch of Jesus from whom the light of the world is risen. Pity us, pity us, mother of the Lord, To open the door of Heaven to this weakling. Rejoice, glorious Virgin, beautiful above all others. Be merciful, have mercy upon Dufay’s prayer, that might make his death fitting in your eyes. Salutations to the beautiful of all beauty who may intercede with Christ for us, Do not condemn us from the heights of heaven: show mercy upon us. And give us help, so that in Death’s hour our hearts will be pure.

Flos florum
Blossom of blossoms, wellspring of greening, all-encompassing queen; hope of forgiveness, light upon gladness, healer of grieving; flowering burgeon, yet comely virgin, the emblem of blessings; spare us from judgment, bear the deliverance of faithful serenity, nurture thine own, rescue thine own, upon thine own, pity.

Kyrie: Lord, have mercy. Christ, have mercy. Lord, have mercy.
Gloria: Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace to men of good will. We praise thee. We bless thee. We adore thee. We glorify thee. We give thee thanks for thy great glory, O Lord God, heavenly King. God the Father almighty. O Lord, the only begotten son Jesus Christ. O Lord God, Lamb of god, Son of the Father. Who takest away the sins of the world, have mercy on us. Who takest away the sins of the world, receive our prayers. Who sittest at the right hand of the Father, have mercy on us. For thou only art holy. Thou only art Lord. Thou only, O Jesus Christ, art most high. With the Holy Ghost, in the glory of God the Father. Amen.
Credo: I believe in one God, the Father almighty, maker of heaven and earth, and of all things visible and invisible. And in one Lord Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God, born of the Father before all ages; God of God, light of light, true God of true God; begotten not made; being of one substance with the Father; by whom all things were made. Who for us men, and for our salvation, came down from heaven; and was incarnate by the Holy Ghost, of the Virgin Mary; and was made man. He was crucified also for us, suffered under Pontius Pilate, and was buried. And the third day he rose again according to the Scriptures; and ascended into heaven. He sitteth at the right hand of the Father, and he shall come again with glory to judge the living and the dead; and his kingdom shall have no end. And [I believe] in the Holy Ghost, the Lord and giver of life, who proceedeth from the Father and the Son, who together with the Father and the Son is adored and glorified; who spoke by the Prophets. And [in] one holy catholic and apostolic Church. I confess one baptism for the remission of sins. And I await the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the world to come. Amen.
Sanctus: Holy, holy. holy, Lord God of hosts. Heaven and earth are full of thy glory. Hosanna in the highest. Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord. Hosanna in the highest.
Agnus Dei: Lamb of God, who takest away the sins of the world, have mercy on us. Lamb of God, who takest away the sins of the world, have mercy on us. Lamb of God, who takest away the sins of the world, grant us peace.
