Classical vs. Ecclesiastical Latin

Because you are an English speaker, and the "soft", Italian pronounciation seems natural to you.

Yet a big part of the Catholic word has never used Italian pronounciation, so it is not even quite fair to call it "ecclesiastic" pronounciation. Listen to the following recoring and pay attention how they pronounce "regona" and "dulcedo". This is how Latin was and still is pronunced in churches of Poland, Austria, Germany, Hungary.
