Help in identifying possible di lasso piece

I have my choral library an arrangement by Marti Pollock published by Staff Music Publishing in 1971 of "Two Madrigals" by Orlando di Lasso. The two texts are both in English with no Italian. They are "O lady Fair" and "Ah Could My eyes Behold Thee." Does anyone know if these two madrigals are really by di Lasso and if so, what their real titles may be? I think the music is suitable for my choir but I'd rather find the Italian version than English. Thanks,

The second one sounds like "O Occhi Manza Mia." It's a little hard to guess the first, but it could be "Bon Jour Mon Coeur" (French). Both are di Lasso classics, found in the venerable "A Cappella singer" as well as many other places.
