    Veni Emanuel is a firm fav of mine, have fun translating, it should be easy for the AS latin pupil:

    Veni, veni Emanuel!
    Captivum solve Israel!
    Qui gemit in exilio,
    Privatus Dei Filio.

    Gaude, gaude, Emanuel
    Nascetur pro te, Israel.

    Veni, veni o oriens!
    Solare nos adveniens,
    Noctis depelle nebulas,
    Dirasque noctis tenebras.

    Veni, veni Adonai!
    Qui populo in Sinai
    Legem dedisti vertice,
    In Maiestate gloriae.

    Allegri's 'Miserere Mei' is hard to beat - however trite it is to say it.

    Indeed, good choral techniques involved.

    And the girls' high school twenty minutes away - they're hardly virginial. They screw all the nastier specimens around our school as they have no real taste.
    Or perhaps you are just spotty, ugly and just generally undesirable to young ladies?

    .............................So for all the pretentions and hypocracies of the old church, it's still quite beautiful, flawed or not.
    Indeed the Church is aestheticly pleasing, but sufficiently beautiful to justify the 'pretentions' and 'hypocracies'? I don't think so.

    Okay, as per the first, my name on here is a reference to my favourite author of the nineteenth century, trite as 'Importance' is, it's still amusing and witty. Anyway - the actual point is, I'm female. And not that way inclined, so I'm not particularly bothered if I'm undesirable to young ladies. Additionally, not spotty. Good genetics.

    As per the second, I think it's a matter of enjoyment of the service, and disregarding the politics of the church on the whole. The purity of our choir's voices, on a sunny morning at Matins, when very few attend the service is incredibly intense, the Latin sung is pleasing to the ear, and I like the reverence and weight of the service, knowing that it's been listened to for hundreds of years. Yes, I could debate that the Latin I enjoy meant the service was unintelligible pre-English Bible, that the Church makes numerous errors, and is heavy-handed, but I prefer not to think of that at this moment in time. The problems with the church can far outweigh the good, but, as I was trying to say, it can *still* be beautiful - I personally meant to the ear, not aesthetically, but either way.

    Gratified to know that I managed to persuade you. It is possible that going to the school I do, I have become indoctrinated with an enjoyment of tradition, and classical study - I'm taking Latin and Classics, so it's partly necessary to enjoy. I think if I didn't understand a church service in Latin, though, I'd still enjoy it. However- as when the person taking Latin grace at my house's dinner mispronounced everything horrendously, it becomes slightly less appealing to understand grace/hymns/services.

    A good reason to stick to Benedictus benedicat. Almost impossible to mispronounce.

    This was a French teacher, attempting an Italian accent, with hard 'v' sounds, without ellision, and getting stuck in the middle of a sentence. I cringed, all the way through. The cute guy next to me thought I was in pain.

    There is a slight difference between Cambridge sports teams and APU :confused: Football isn't important at Cambridge really. The first VIII, on the other hand

    I don't really know - it could have been Cambridge, but our football team isn't that prestigious. The comment about the first VIII is merely because rowing is much more high-profile, so someone sleeping with them would be more of a notorious "achievement" than the footie team. I'm not talking about myself! :eek:
