Virgil Aeneid 9 381-401

silva fuit lātē dūmīs atque īlice nigrā

horrida, quam dēnsī complērant undique sentēs;

rāra per occultōs lūcēbat sēmita callēs.

Euryalum tenebrae rāmōrum onerōsaque praeda

impediunt, fallitque timor regiōne viārum.                  385

Nīsus abit; iamque imprūdēns ēvāserat hostēs

atque locōs quī post Albae dē nōmine dictī

Albānī (tum rēx stabula alta Latīnus habēbat),

ut stetit et frūstrā absentem respexit amīcum:

‘Euryale īnfēlīx, quā tē regiōne relīquī?                      390

quāve sequar?’ rūrsus perplexum iter omne revolvēns

fallācis silvae simul et vestīgia retrō

observāta legit dūmīsque silentibus errat.

audit equōs, audit strepitūs et signa sequentum;

nec longum in mediō tempus, cum clāmor ad aurēs    395

pervenit ac videt Euryalum, quem iam manus omnis

fraude locī et noctis, subitō turbante tumultū,

oppressum rapit et cōnantem plūrima frūstrā.

quid faciat? quā vī iuvenem, quibus audeat armīs

ēripere? an sēsē mediōs moritūrus in ēnsēs               400

īnferat et pulchram properet per vulnera mortem?

This year the standard of entries was very high and it was not easy for the judges to make their final decisions.  We congratulate all the entrants and their teachers on their efforts.  It was clear that a great deal of hard work, preparation and thought had gone into all the recordings.  We hope that even those who did not win enjoyed taking part and we would like to encourage schools to continue sending entries in future.
