So that's 29 phrases to learn.  Some words are very close to the English already, like "gloria" and "Maria".  Others are repeated, so once you get the hang of "Propter", "Patre", "Ad", "In", "Per", "Ex" and "De" then you have learnt almost half the list!

If you are singing the Mass already, see if you can call to mind these meanings as you sing these phrases.
