Is Latin a "dead" language, useful only for reading classical literature and English vocabulary building? You won't think so after hearing this high-quality recording. Hymns are sung in Latin by a six-person acapella Gregorian chant choir. Students hear clear pronunciations, and can add hundreds of words to their Latin vocabulary. More advanced students will pick up on Latin syntax and grammar. Contains all the music in Latina Christiana I and II, plus the Kyrie, Gloria, Sanctus, Agnus Dei, Stabat Mater, Dies Irae, Ave Maria, Panis Angelicus, Ubi Caritas, and more (24 hymns in all). Student workbooks are used for vocabulary, translation and grammar/word study. Teacher Manuals include answers and instructions on how to use the course. Please note that the CD and the songbook are used with Books I and II, each of which covers 12 songs.
