You can download 4 lo-fi mp3s from the album from
These are truncated! The title track went from 4:19 to only 1:43:-(

This blogger has a great review of the album.

She also links to links to the Vatican's official modern Latin word list (Léxicon Recentis Latinitatis), with items for karate, kamikaze, mountain bike, laser, baby-sitter, blue-jeans, check-up, camping, discoteque, flirt, full-time, hot-pants, hummus, jazz, jet, jeep, poncho, picnic, popcorn, privacy, punk, plaid, pizza, strudel, tobacco, terrorist, and dozens of other staple fixtures of modern life other than unidentified flying objects.
