Subject: RE: Lyr Add: 'Good King Wenceslas' in Latin
Should we make a practice of adding Latin lyrics to the DT ? "Oppugnavit Iosue Iericho/corruerunt tum muri" would be a good addition, if the copyright ever expires.....
Query: if the words first appeared in the Piae Cantiones, what is the basis for dating them to the 13th century ?
