As per the joining instructions, here's my self-intro.

I found this forum after discovering to my chagrin that the LLPSE audio doesn't go beyond capitulum xxxi in classical pronunciation. I was trying to find out why. Does anyone know? (Besides the sad passing away of the author, I mean; and that wouldn't preclude the option of having another voice complete the set.)

For me, registering here is happily ironic in that it was from Textkit ...

Help with text please

Hi Folks,
I am creating a polyphonic setting of a text for S.A.T.B. a cappella choir.
The original English text is

"The Past provides; we give thanks.
The present lives; we give thanks.
The future has hope; we give thanks."

The Latin translation that I am working with is,

"In praeteritis cavetur; gratias agimus.
In vitae nunc; gratias agimus.
Spes in futuro; gratias agimus."

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

How can I get a hold of Jeff?


I read all the rules and posted a question on behalf of my biology group in the Learn Latin forum instead of a "Hello" style post on the Open Board. I am trying to get a hold of Jeff to ask when it might show up, but the email posted on the Contact doesn't work. Thanksgiving holiday, there might be a lot of people coming on to hang out, we really want to get ...
