Thread Name: Lyr Req: Gaudete (from Steeleye Span)
Subject: RE: Gaudete - Steeleye Span
Two years! the latin teacher - a nun - knew my family and threatened to go direct to them to report my generally unsatisfactory attitude/behavior/lack of scholarly motivation. I badly wanted to take Spanish - really wanted to speak Italian even more... Wish I had; I hated the Latin class.. Two years!..

So: For what very little it's worth, I too think it's "ex Maria virgine."

The song, however, is beautiful.. one of my many favorite Steeleye Span cuts. Does anybody know if that album is available in CD?

Joe: what is the URL for that Steeleye Span site?

Cheers, BK
