Hi, and welcome to the list!

This is the way I utter it /'dOmine ad adju'vandum mE fe'stina/, that is the
latter hyposteses. I've heard there are people that pronounce Latin in a
different way I do. Italian classical pronounciation is based on clerical
Latin, thus we have 'c' and 'g' uttered as /tS/ and /dZ/ before 'e' and 'i',
ti+vowel as /tsj/, ae and oe as /E/, sc + e or i as /S/.
