About this title
Carl Orff's 24 selections from the 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 of the original Latin, facing vocabulary, and informative essays. This text will enrich understanding and heighten appreciation of these beloved medieval poems.
* Original Latin poems with facing vocabulary, translation, and essays
* Additional literary translation by Jeffery M. Duban
* Featuring medieval woodcuts as well as 17 original illustrations by Thom Kapheim
* Carmina Burana, with its provocative subject matter and evocative music, makes Latin a vibrant, living language!

The usefulness of this book in the classroom is attested by the following: "This book was an invaluable resource to me while student teaching. . . . My pupils were third-year Latin students at a public high school. As a person who holds degrees in Music and Latin . . . I am eager to find ways to bridge the two fields in my own Latin classroom." Lisa H. Altevogt.
