Latin songsThese are some of my many translations of well-known songs into Latin. More will be published here as I find the time to transcribe them.
You are welcome to sing these songs, but please request permission for public performance or publication. The translations here are all copyright © 2003–2008 Scott Horne.
These translations all rhyme and scan. I consider them reasonably successful. Please let me know what you think.
