What sort of Latin texts are you hoping to be able to read/use?

I'd like to be able to compose and read hymns in Latin, mostly.

That's a really awesome ambition!

It's worth noting that within the time Latin was spoken, rhyming was introduced. So classical-era works will be rythmically strict, but not rhyme, whereas early medieval works will be focussed on their rhyming scheme. Compare any short work by, say, Vergil, with something Christian like Pange lingua gloriosi corporis mysterium.
