Today’s Music of the Day – Carmina Burana

Another one of my favorite pieces in the classical style is Carmina Burana. It has a neat history, with the texts having been found in a monastery and later put to music by Carl Orf. One of the most popular parts of the music is the “O Fortuna” piece, frequently used in movies that want a medieval sounding theme.

One of my favourite musical passages of all time is at 40:12 in this video, the “In taberna quando sumus”. It’s an incredibly odd piece of music, but just works somehow.

  1. Hi!

    Can you log into your NatNet account? Can you post a blog apologizing to my readers that I can’t look after them because I’m now locked out?
