    I've not listened to the singing. The Latin lyrics have some significant faults.

    Even though I’m not a religious person, I find some of the (Latin) music very beautiful.
    This version of Miserere mei, Deus performed by the choir of new college, Oxford is one of my favorites:

    Out of all the Gregorian chants I recently have been listening to Terra Tremuit:

    For some reason I can really get into a good running phase during my cardio listening to Gregorian chants.

    Strange, because it sounds more like the kind of rhythm to make you sleep than to make you run. :D

    I think it's because I'm always trying to figure out the Latin in my head while running and doing so I keep the brain busy. :D

    I tend to mentally practice Latin when I'm at the gym. Better than listening to the random tripe from the radio they have playing :D

    I found this version very enjoyable, it's nice to hear some females for once. :)

    A couple of songs I like to listen, in Latin:

  9. Iohannes Aurum Technicus Auxiliarius

    • Technicus Auxiliarius
    Here's a traditional Roman one:

    Scitisne Stellam Splendentem?

    Pulcherrima carminam medioevalem, ab "Llibre Vermell".

  11. Has anyone heard of Tyrtarion? The chorus at Academia Vivarum?

    They adapted quite a few samples of Latin and Greek poetry into songs; the beat of some songs follows the original meter closely. I love their adaption of Horace and Catullus 51

    Ovid, Tristia 1.3.

    Horace, Odes 2.19.

    Horace, Odes, 3.1.

    Catullus 51

    Homer, Odyssey invocation

    I've seen some of their videos. When we were reading Dido's last words in Latin class I meant to share this video of theirs with the class but I forgot to:
  13. Matthaeus Vemortuicida strenuus

    • Civis Illustris
    I like Tyrtarion, but I think they use the same melody and rhythm in many of their songs.

    Awesome, especially the first two.

    Here are two others by them that I like:

  16. Next year, we're getting a new instructor. So I plan to coerce her into adding Tyrtarion's Carmen ad Bacchum to the Christmas Concert program.

    1st day of Chorus
    Me(walks up with a wax tablet and lyre in hand) Salve!
    Instructor:.... Hi?
    Me: There was, there was, once such virtue, justice, knowledge, gravitas, servitas... in this very Republic, that we shall with a brave Bacchic hymn do it more honor than the most solemn epic! ;)

    A hymn to the pagan god Bacchus at a Christmas concert would be sacrilegious, don't you think? :D But then again, if Hindu stuff was sung last year, that was sacrilege too.
  18. Sacrilege indeed. but previously I've convinced a teacher to offer sacrifice to the gods before dessert on Latin Language table days. It was rice crispy treats, so we poured grape juice on an empty plate and sprinkled rice crispy shreds over it. Also, I've managed to chant the homeric hymn to Zeus with a friend before a major athletic event.

    Really? Can you give more detail? That sounds very interesting. :D
