Music in Latin..Carmina Latina cantata

....

Listen to Classical Latin poetry by Catullus, Horace and others set to music. We are especially fond of the group Tyrtarion whose work is very useful for getting a sense of the meters without resorting to scansion since they render the meters by respecting the syllable length, i.e. both vowel and consonant lengths while still keeping the natural word accents.

Fruimini carminibus pulcherrimis cum ab aliis tum a Catullo, Horatio scripta et a Tyrtarione grege musico Academiae Vivarii Novi modis musicis instructa. Haec carmina ita cantantur, ut, syllabarum longitudine, tum vocalium tum consonantium, et accentu verbi naturali servatis, metra clare reddantur. Quae perquam utilia esse ducimus ad metra poetica cognoscenda quod sic, potius quam ut versus dissectos scandamus, numeros huius vel illius metri proprios auribus percipimus et sentimus.
