Latin is sooooo hard to learn . . .



I was very taken with this post by Mulier Fortis, I thought I'd share it with you.

Quite often one hears the comment when discussing Mass settings, choice of music etc. 'Oh, but Latin is so difficult for our young people to learn.' 'They aren't used to it'. 'They don't learn it in school any more' and so on . . .

Well, here is a delightful clip of a very gifted young man, just four years old, singing the Salve Regina and obviously enjoying it too.

See and hear for yourself here. Well done Edward! We look forward to your rendition of the Alma Redemptoris Mater very soon!

Many thanks for the link, Father!

Apparently Edward and his younger brother drowned out the singing of the Alma by the choir at St. Bede's the next day...

(and I hope to catch them unawares at our next Missa Cantata...)
