Latin Song Book


Fr. Valentine Young taught Latin to many seminarians at St. Francis in Cincinnati. He continues to instill an appreciation for the language in children and adults to this day. 

One of his most entertaining methods of keeping this "dead language" alive is with a Latin songbook. Not only did he translate many familiar sing-along tunes into Latin, but he figured out Latin rhymes and chose words with appropriate meter (or nearly appropriate).
