Good King Wenceslaus, Latin version, and other carols

LatinTeach led me to a collection of ideas for celebrating festivals, including a rather neat Latin translation of Good King W. It is a pdf. You will spot the typo – for ‘non’ read ‘nox’ in the line “Ere, nox fit atrior”.

LatinTeach also points to more carols and Christmas songs (and one for Hanukkah) here. I haven’t gone through them in detail, but my overall impression is that teachers could use them with confidence, and that the Latin is really singable. The rhymes work well, too.

There are more good Christmas links on the LatinTeach page, so here is the link again:
