re: Latin vowels (hidden quantity)

Forum:

My serious study (via personal time) of Classical Latin is in its 5th month. Aside from the basic rules of long vowels, diphthongs, and short vowels my grandest curiosity is the so-called "hidden quantity" of vowels. Can anyone recommend audio recordings that express these various quantities?

Sincerely,

Caeruleus

hi caeruleus, the best place to hear recordings of correct quantity is in poetry, as you probably already know and read. I really like the recordings here:
