Cantantibus organis is commonly found in two versions. The shorter appears in the Solesmes editions as the first antiphon at Vespers of the Feast of St. Cecilia (November 22). It is set by Liszt but also in very old chant sources as both antiphon and responsory; Cima replaces the last three words with 'alleluia'. The longer version is found in many renaissance settings (both Lassos, Manchicourt, Marenzio).

Latin.png Latin text

Cantantibus organis Cecilia virgo [gloriosa]
[in corde suo soli Domino] decantabat dicens:
Fiat Domine cor meum [et corpus meum] immaculatum
ut non confundar.

[Frequent pendant:]
Biduanis ac triduanis jejuniis orans,
commendabat Domino quod timebat:
Fiat Domine cor meum et corpus meum immaculatum
ut non confundar.

While the musicians played, Cecilia the [glorious] virgin
sang [in her heart only to the Lord], saying:
'Lord, let my heart [and body] remain without stain,
that I be not put to shame.'
Translation by Mick Swithinbank

Supplicating by two or three days of fasting,
she gave herself unto the Lord whom she feared:
Let my Lord make my heart and my body unspotted,
that I may not be confounded.
