The third and fourth stanzas of the text speak of the rod of Aaron – one of the more well-known Marian metaphors of the Middle Ages. The Book of Numbers (17:1–11) describes how Jahweh resolved the leadership of the twelve tribes of Israel by ordering that the leader of each tribe was to lay a rod in the tabernacle of witness. The rod of the man chosen to be leader of all the tribes (Aaron) would then flourish. Through this example of the unfertilised bearing of fruit, and because of the similarity of the Latin words \u003cem\u003evirgo \u003c\/em\u003e(virgin) and \u003cem\u003evirga \u003c\/em\u003e(rod), Aaron’s rod came to be associated with Mary’s virginity.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eThe scoring of the work for eight voices is also highly significant.

This is thought to derive from the saving of eight souls ‘by water’ during the building of the Ark (1 Peter 3:20), and is the reason that many baptismal fonts are octagonal.
