deo cantamus concert

You may recall that previously I claimed to "know latin", but let me confirm that once again I have proven not to be a linquist. I was able to demonstrate this skill last night at my third Deo Cantamus concert. Overall the concert was a success, as God was honored through the music we sang and our guest pianist played. It was personnally successful as I only messed up a few times in the Magnificat...hopefully very quietly...I just can't seem to get the latin syllables out in time with the notes! Thankfully we ended the concert with several sacred songs with words that I could pronounce.

Part One-Deo Cantamus Choral
Magnificat.....Giovanni Battista Pergolesi(1710-1736)

III. Deposuit Potentes (He Hath Put Down the Mighty)
