“Carmina Burana” is the title of a 13th-century collection of songs in Latin, found in 1803 in the Benedictine monastery of Benediktbeuern. Transferred to Bayerische Staatsbibliothek in Munich, the manuscript fell into the hands of Munich based Carl Orff, and inspired him to compose a great—and one of the most famous in the world nonetheless—vocal and instrumental cantata.
