Your students can learn from a master!
Dr. Sonkowsky brings these passages to life in a way that will enthrall and inspire students.  His performance is masterful.  What better way to give your students a perfect model of pronunciation, rhythm, and elision?  Students love to imitate his deep, resonant voice.  The 101 tracks are clearly marked and easily accessible through a clear menu.  Indispensable to anyone who teaches poetry (my students don't take even the AP, but we find the selections here a perfect complement to a poetry survey course).

Review by: Greg Leach - January 14, 2008
I received Latin Aloud today and the sound is magnificent. As a person who is enamored with diction and phonetics, I stand amazed at Professor Sonkowski's ability to emote and deliver with conviction and authority the beauty of this so called dead language. Greg Leach
