While not the spiritual experience of Handel's Messiah, Orff's Carmina Burana is an unparalleled musical experience. It should, if done all justice, include a full Orff orchestra, choir, and dancers!

Shelves: poetry, latin, medieval
The poems themselves are worthwhile but the edition contains errors (e.g. two poems XII), not the most pleasing typeface, and editorial notes that focus more on providing citations of classical and biblical allusions than comments on grammar and Medieval Latinity.

I remember Orff being rediscovered in the 60s after being suppressed following WW II.

My copy is from Cincinnati's May Festival Book for 1982.
