Carmina Burana

Modo Antiquo

Brilliant Classics presents an unusual juxtaposition of the original and the ‘arrangement’ of Carmina Burana. The original Carmina dates from the 12th and 13th centuries and deals with the rather earthy subjects of drinking, love, adversity and the return of Spring. The title means ‘Songs from Beuern’, the location of the monastery where they were found.

An unusual juxtaposition of the original and the “arrangement”. These two CD’s offer an interesting combination of some of the Medieval Carmina Burana and Carl Orff’s interpretation.

The original Carmina date from the 12th en 13th centuries and deal with rather down to earth subjects such as drinking, love, adversity, the return of Spring. In no way were they intended as art. Their name means Songs from Beuern, location of the monastery where they were found.

Orff’s interpretation of a selection of these songs promoted them into the concert hall of the twentieth century. They still are a vibrant testimony of life’s different aspects.

Contrasting atmospheres in the performances by the renowned early music ensemble Modo Antiquo and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.
