Wow! I LOVE what you wrote here. While I can't understand Wow! I LOVE what you wrote here. While I can't understand Latin very well, some words are clearly discernable.

In the choir I used to sing with, we sung plenty in Latin and it made such a huge difference in the feel of the mass.

Merry Christmas to you and to those closes to you, as well as a blessed New Year!
