Translation Help

I'd heard a good amount about Giordano Bruno and his memory techniques, so I scrounged up an archive of some of his writings in Latin. I started out trying to read his De Umbris Idearum, but even with more than liberal use of the Words dictionary program, I found myself unable to read it, so I decided to attempt to translate it, which means that I have to at least attempt to understand the sentence ...

Carmina Natalia

Ut aliter antea dixi, carmines Natalis Latine scripsi, versos primos. Hic, Anglice, "It Came Upon a Midnight Clear", aut "O Venit Media Nocte Clara" :

O venit media nocte clara,
Illvd carmen glorioso,
Ab angelos venti prae terra
Sonare lyras avro:
"In terra pax, et hominibvs
Bonae e Rege volvntatis."
In qviete mvndvs posvit,
Avdire cantar' angelis.


Scio hi versi non latinae optimae sunt, sed fortasse agunt; consilia vestra sunt gratissima.

Elisionem in verso sexto ...

hectabrach plus

far from the title of this topic being the name of some obscure body ointment, i came across the word abolefacio today. i accordingly noted that the present active infinitive forms a run of six syllables that would all be scanned as short ab-o-le-fa-ce-re - thus what would surely be called a hectabrach.
does anyone know, or can anyone think of, a heptabrach or more?
