Sebesta has provided vivid, literal translations of composer Carl Orff's selections from the Medieval Latin poems of the Carmina Burana. These poems 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.

I am writing with compliments for the Judith Lynn Sebesta Carmina Burana text...This book was an invaluable resource to me while student teaching during this past term. My pupils were third-year Latin students at a public high school. During the unit, I would play a recording of the specific carmen following our reading of the Latin. -- Lisa Heath Altevogt
We should welcome [Sebesta's] book which will contribute much to the pupil's appreciation of Orff and the Carmina Burana...this would be an excellent investment for the school library... ' --The Joint Association of Classical Teachers
