Carmina Burana, first performed in 1937, is based on an important collection of thirteenth-century poems found in the monastery of Benediktbeuren. Carl Orff made selections from this collection and in robust and delicate musical colors painted a manifold picture of life. “Everything I have written up to now, and which you have unfortunately printed, you can shred into pulp. My collected works begin with 'Carmina Burana'.” Carl Orff wrote to his publisher after the premiere. And so it was that his work caused a sensation in the whole world and continues to delight people of all cultures. The 'Carmina Burana' are written for solo singers, chorus and orchestra.

  • February 01, 2012 THANK YOU!

    After receiving our on-loan music for the female voices in our choir, I decided I wanted my own music (some of the words were gone from many erasures etc...). I found the prices on line to be so high I almost gave up... when I found your store. I...

    bought 2 copies, one for me and one for my mother who sings in the chorus with me. They are exactly the same as the ones we were given in choir! They came shipped in a nice sturdy envelope and the price was fantastic! THANK YOU! I will buy from you again! : D

    Carmina Burana is very interesting, but challenging. I've been singing in a small college choir for several years, and am using Carmina to practice for a Reno Philharmonic Orchestra and Choir concert in April. This music, for women's parts only, is confusing to an intermediate level singer, due...

    to the notation used for men's parts not printed in toto, as they are in the complete vocal score. Timing is tricky, too, as signatures may change from one measure to the next, repeatedly. Using this music with a very talented director, and listening to a recorded practice CD on my own, I'm gradually picking up the nuances. Now for the pronunciation of the Latin and German words. Lots of fun!!!
