Video Activity: Requiem Mass

As you listen, ask yourself the following questions: Can I understand the Latin text? Even if I can’t understand it, does this lessen how I feel about these sounds? 

Similarly, do you find this music from 600 years ago any less beautiful than that of today? Judging from this one musical example, have humans gone forward, backward, or sideways?
