Jan Novak (1921-1984), who is part of the Moravian music tradition represented by composers like Leos Janacek and Bohuslav Martinu, set to music secular Latin authors of antiquity, the Middle Ages, and modern times. His work is based on the syllable quantities of the Latin language. Novak brings the rhythm of Latin alive in a very distinctive way.

A cassette with musical arrangement of Catullus, Horace, Gaudeamus Igitur, Anth, Lat., Caesar, Carmina Burana, Martial, and Phaedrus.

Cassette is accompanied by a libretto with original Latin text and English translation on facing pages.
