Raffaella Aleotti was an Italian composer and organist. One of the five daughters acknowledged by the Ferrarese court architect Giovanni Battista Aleotti in his 1631 will, she was prioress of the musically renowned Augustinian convent of S Vito, Ferrara, from 1636 to 1639. A collection of her motets for five, seven, eight and nine voices and instruments was published by Amadino in 1593. The pieces show a thorough mastery of contrapuntal technique, rhythmic vitality and sensitivity to the meaning of the texts. The present setting of Ego flos campi has been transcribed from the 1593 collection. It is notable for its unusual scoring of 7 voices, and for its elegant simplicity.

The text is of course derived from the Song of Songs (Ch. 2, vv1-3)

I am the rose of Sharon, and the lily of the valleys. As the lily among thorns, so is my love among the daughters. As the apple tree among the trees of the wood, so is my beloved among the sons.
