Gaudium Mundo: Latin Holiday Songs in Canvas

Blog Post created by Laura Gibbs on Dec 2, 2017

So my last post was the Thanksgiving Holiday Edition, and here's another holiday post: I've updated my Latin holiday song widget so that there is an iframe version ready-to-use in Canvas! You can get a random holiday song in Latin OR you can follow along with the calendar-based version, which has new songs for every day of December. Each item in the widget links to a post at my Gaudium Mundo blog which has the Latin lyrics and, whenever I can find one, a YouTube video to sing along with.


All the information you need is at my Canvas Widget Warehouse: Gaudium Mundo, and the javascripts and iframes are all available at the blog. You can use the javascripts ANYWHERE that javascripts are allowed (like in blog sidebars, wikis, etc.), and if javascripts are restricted, like in Canvas, just use the iframe version: it's sneaky, and it works! :-)

And if you think my interest in Latin holiday songs is a bit eccentric, I am not alone! Check out one of my all-time favorites: Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer as Gregorian chant. I don't think I can embed SoundCloud here, but just click to listen to Reno Erat Rudolphus:
