Songs in Latin Posted by on Jun 15, 2011 in Latin Language

Whoever said Latin is dead? Recently a friend of mine informed me that the anime “Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood” has two songs in its soundtrack that feature Latin lyrics. One of the songs is called “Lapis Philosophorum” or “Philosopher’s Stone”. The lyrics to the songs can be seen below:

Lapis philosophorum lapis ruber lapis quantus
sacrificum vis caputo felicitas

Debes sapio debes ibi multa miseria tua retro
calamitatis habes saputo felicitas

Ubi es inpedis terra e tem pus anteactus
sapies eo quam erant cadeveris infinitatis.

Debes sapio debes ibi multa miseri tua retro
calamitatis habes saputo felicitas

Ubi es inpedis terra e tem pus anteactus
sapies eo quam erant cadeveris infinitatis.

Specta mortuus specta si denuo desiderium
sapies habebis tueri sanguinem brachi pedis rubus,
Lapis philosophorum lapis ruber affecto quam res…?

This next song is also in Latin and from the soundtrack of the same anime. It’s called “Trisha’s Lullaby”.

Dormite liberi,
dulci pueri dormite, caloria et,
comodus vester lecti boni.

Osservo te, semper te,
latus tui costa te, autem solus, mitite,
Latus tui hic sum.

In Somninum plati
floridus plena, dormite liberi
dulci mei dormite

Mitite liberi,
sine pater autem, mitite, liberi,
visi te tua mater.

Osservo te, semper te,
latus tui costa te, liberi sine sentite,
momentum dormite.

In conclave sine mater.
conclave dum dies saperis…

    Latin seems to be hiding in our media. There are a rather large number of Japanese video games and TV series that use Latin frequently. The Final Fantasy games have Latin songs in them. Disney’s “Beauty and the Beast” has a Latin saying on a stained glass window in the beginning. It really neat to see where it’s being used.
