    Hey guys I just saw what you are doing I find it really cool. The only thing is that i think that maybe it would be a good idea to make it in latin instead of english. That would be cool right? Like SBB main theme, it was amazing.

      Majora’s Mask is mostly played in English, so an opera English allows for direct quotations.
      English is (said to be) the most globalized language, while Latin is studied by a minority (though not few, mind you) of people.
      Latin may sound “cool”, but I don’t think it can be used fluently nowadays. Some Hollywood soundtracks use very plain lyrics, when they make sense. (SSBB’s theme does too, but at least they’re well-contextualized.)
      Latin may sound “cool” as in “patronizing”, while this opera is supposed to appeal to as many as possible.
      Even in the 18th century operas weren’t written in Latin.

      I see no reason to have the opera sound fake-cool in Latin when so far it’s this good (and for real) in English.

      No hard feelings, just my thought.
