This list contains songs that are performed in Latin by the named performers. Songs that sample other recorded music in Latin do not become eligible only by virtue of that sampling. Songs with only a Latin refrain are also excluded.


Classical music[edit]

Almost all Catholic liturgical music composed before the middle of the 20th century, including literally thousands of settings of the ordinary of the mass (Gloria, Credo, Sanctus, Agnus Dei), the ordinary and proper of the Requiem mass, psalms, canticles (such as the Magnificat), antiphons, and motets. Famous examples include:

The libretto for the opera-oratorio Oedipus rex (opera) by Igor Stravinsky is in Latin.
