The sad fact is, many people are good at reading and writing Latin, of those, some use Restored Classical. Of those, only a tiny minority place much importance on correct pronunciation, or for that matter on spoken Latin at all.
That is, basically, why there is so little out there on the net in the way of spoken Latin, and believe you me, I have written to god knows how many university classics departments asking for contributions - be it just a single poem, a few lines of Cicero.
Latinum exists because I could not find what I wanted, an intensive , free of charge oral course for Latin using restored classical pronunciation. I have usually ( but not always, as you can see from Latinum's archives) hit a blank when I tried to get people to record Latin for me. I have discussed this matter with a number of academics, and basically, the consensus is that the reason I was having so much trouble finding people to record in restored classical, is that very few can do it, without extensive preparation - i.e. marking up the text first , and even then, they are nervous about having their efforts published online.
I spoke to Nancy at Salvi, http://www.latin.org/
and she said that those people who get together to speak, don't as a matter or course get their vowel quantities right, so recording those informal conversations would not be beneficial educationally if I was concerned about this matter - and she pointed out that the likes of Sonkowsky et al carefully mark up their texts before recording. ( As indeed do I, but when I have finished with Adler, I will no longer need to do this for the words that I have encountered along the way)
I decided that this was not what I wanted for myself, I wanted to learn to get the vowel quantities right, from the inception of learning Latin, so that when I pick up Catullus, Cicero or my beloved Lucretius when I eventually achieve my desired level of fluency, I will be able to read correctly and fluently without too much effort. I want the Romans to resonate and sound in my ears as they wanted to sound - or as close to it as I imagine I can get - and after all, all restored classical variants that have been reconstructed are only approximations - albeit I believe quite good approximations - of the pronunciation used by the aristocrats on the Palatine Hill.
So, I started Latinum. http://latinum.mypodcast.com
I was fortunate to have Johannes Alatius http://eclassics.ning.com/video/video/s ... eo%3A12846
listen to every single episode of the first 30 chapters of Latinum, and correct the vagaries in my pronunciation. I am much more fluent a reader now, a few months onward. I listen to far more Latin on an average day than I do English.
In recording Latinum, I also made a decision to use the full range of accents. http://community.middlebury.edu/~harris ... ation.html
I am convinced that these were used in Roman Poetry, just as they were in Ancient Greek poetry, and possibly also in oratory. I give my reasoning about this here:
