Ancient Music Wednesday : W.A Mozart, Il sogno de Scipione

This week I found a really interesting book to read and study Latin, this book was called Somnium scipionis which was written by Cicero. This book was referred to by people at an online Latin forum. When I looked it up and read about it, I am even more excited because 1) it was referred to as science fiction of the Roman times and 2) Mozart wrote an opera, which I am sharing the music with you today, based on a part of this book.

So, yes I am venturing into somnium scipionis, wish me luck!
