<< This is the way I utter it /'dOmine ad adju'vandum mE fe'stina/, that is
 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/.

 AND YOU? >>

We've had arguments in choir, one side saying it the way you said to, the
other side saying DOmine ad ADjuvandum me festina or ad adjuVANdum. My
director insists on "ad adjuVANdum"... but when singing most people have
trouble getting it out because its a rather fast paced song. thanks though!
