    Someone asked me quite a while ago if I could compose a Latin rendition of this song, and while I've since been beaten to it by my female British counterpart on YouTube (username O1ivette), I finally gave in to my urge to do a CAG (a self-coined acronym for "Classical Attic Greek") version. Constructive critique is welcome, as always. There were a couple spots where I had to be a bit creative with vocabulary, using a hypothetical feminine form of "μάγος" towards the end and presuming a transcription of Frollo's name as "Φρῶλλος."

    I learned yet another intriguing etymology when I looked up the word for "witchcraft," though it's little surprise that the ancients viewed magic and the use of medicinal substances as one and the same art.

    Wow.... :D I don't know all that much about Greek, but as a BIG fan of Disney's version of "The Hunchback Of Notre Dame" (& its sequel), I have to say that I really loved this video a lot! ^_^ Great job! :D
