Carl Orff's 24 selections from 200 poems of the Carmina Burana celebrate the universal range of human emotion and experience: passion, longing, exuberance, humor, rebellion, ennui, resignation. Now tender, now tragic; secular yet reverent; the poems of the carmina touch the chords of our purest and darkest spirituality. An excellent resource for the student, the performer, the audience and the general reader, this dual language edition provides two moving translations from the original Latin, informative essays, and facing vocabulary.
