Ross King Sings John 1 in Latin

We love Ross King’s music at the Hamilton house.

And we’ve recently started Latin at the Hamilton home-school.

Imagine our delight, then, to find that Ross King is on a similar path, which has given him occasion to put John 1:1–7 to music in English and in Latin.

You can find it here – it’s worth $2!

Not to us, O Lord, but to Thy Name give glory

Great scene in a great play with great music, but the best part is the message.

The song sets the Latin text of Psalm 115:1a to music: “Non nobis, Domine, non nobis, sed nomini tuo da gloriam” (“Not to us, O Lord, not to us, but to Thy Name give glory”).

Online Latin Course: Latinum

I have been wanting to learn Latin for a long time now, and I’ve made several runs at making my way through a Latin Grammar. I’ve recently been motivated anew to make yet another attempt, and a google search turned up what looks like a very helpful site.

Latinum has links to google book versions of an 1850’s Latin Grammar and its accompanying Key to the Exercises, and the Latinum site is full of recorded material for learning Latin. All it takes is $2 and enough discipline to pound through the material.

Enjoy!
