Piggy is researching a song names "the mass". The words are about so:
Semper crescis, Aut decrescis, Vita detestabilis, Nunc obdurate, Et tunc curat, Ludo mentis aciem, Nunc obdurate, Et tunc curat, Ludo mentis aciem, Egestatem, Potestatem, Dissolvit ut glaciem, Divano, Divano me, Divano messi, Divano messia, Divano messia, Divano, Divano me, Divano messia, Divano messia, Sors salutis, Et virtutis, Michi nunc contraria, Est affectus, Et defectus, Semper in angaria, Hac in hora, Sine mora, Corde pulsum tangite, Divano, Divano me, Divano messi, Divano messia, Divano messia……Corde pulsum tangite, Quod per sortem, Sternit fortem, Mecum omnes plangite
Piggy really can't understand what it sings. What language is that?
Anyone can help?
It looks like badly transcribed latin. I don't think all the words are correct.
“I don't think all the words are correct.”
Piggy agrees with your humble opinion very much. Those words were downloaded from web. Piggy always doubts whether the pig got wrong information on web. I know many irresponsible guys playing tricky games on web…
Next, we change an alternative angle to touch the elephant, archeology:
It’s said that the song “the mass” is a religious song. So, it must have an original version?
Mass is a form of Catholic Service.
Musicians have used the term for religious oratorios.
When I was at school, in the choir, we had to sing the Nelson Mass by Haydn.
That was all in Latin.
“Mass is a form of Catholic Service.”
Got it. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you very much.
While in science, the word “mass” is a physics quantity!
Different words same spelling.
Like scales of a fish, the instrument used to weigh things, and musical notes.
All scales, all different.
Perhaps piggy needs this forum most...
What's "scope" though?
Depends on the context, it could be short for microscope or telescope or it could just mean range.
Good. Your explanation is very explicit. Thank you.
Can the word "scale" mean "range" too?
Piggy always feels the word "scope" and the word "scale" look very like.
Piggy feels so too.
Piggy knows the word "devil" means something like monster or demon. But the word "Devil" with an upper letter should mean somebody (in religion)?
