Round-Up: November 26

Here is a round-up of today's Bestiaria Latina blog posts (you can browse through previous round-ups at the Bestiaria Latina Blog archives). Updated earlier this week: Audio Latin Proverbs.

Latin Holiday Songs. As I explained in yesterday's "Rudolphus" post, I've started again with the "holiday songs" for 2007, and instead of a Latin Fable of the Day, I'll be posting a "holiday song of the day" at the eClassics ning. Today's holiday song is Angelus ad Virginem, which is a medieval Latin carol dating back to the late 13th century. It is even mentioned by Chaucer in his Miller's Tale: "Playing so sweetly that the chamber rang; / And Angelus ad virginem he sang..."

For an image to accompany this hymn of the annunciation, I'll let the Annunciation Scene widget supply us with a random Annunciation image! (just press "refresh" in your browser to see more images)

(If you are reading this via email, you will need to visit the blog to see the image in action.)
