In 1934, Carl Orff encountered the 1847 edition of the original text from Carmina Burana dating mostly from the 11th, 12th and 13th century. This selection is covering a wide range of topics, as familiar in the 13th century as they are in the 21st century: the fickleness of fortune and wealth, the ephemeral nature of life, the joy of the return of Spring, and the pleasures and perils of drinking, gluttony, gambling and lust.
