I sang Carmina Burana at the University of Washington Meany Hall in 1980 'ish and must stop doing what ever I am doing because I compelled to listen as I remember the performance I experienced.

when ever I hear this song I put it on so it is play twice because of how good it is and turn it up to full volume.

Very emotional. Not so much sad though. Rather it has a feeling of sudden anger or another strong feeling or passion. (I feel like I am writing a review) :-O

Looks like I'm the oddball. I like it sans lyrics. More dramatic that way.

Everytime I hear it, it hits my soul. Similar to hearing a beautiful voice or the Anthem by bag pipes. Corny but true

My Ballet school's pre-professi o n a l company recently performed this opera. I am not in the company but some of my friends are and the performance looked really cool:)

It was used in star wars. And if listened to carefully... It can be heard in Shrek the halls.....

What do I need to type into my add variety box so that I can get a version of this with the chorus?

Wikipedia Carmina Burana and all will be answered.

Is this from star wars or am I thinking of something else?

Very nice, but better when the choir sings along.

@cunit06 Carmina Burana means O Fortunata, or in normal english, Oh Fortune.

It just loses something without the choir singing the lyrics... Check out the version on "Mad About the Classics." :-D

Not like Star Wars--Star Wars is like this, which was written first! Along with Aaron Copeland, Carl Orff is another seminal composer that highly influences 20th and 21st century film scores, particularly the driving beat and dramatic vocals as an expression of apocalypse.

Sounds sort of like Star Wars meets marching band, if you know what I mean. But still nice.

Use to see a few Colorguard shows done to this music . Very damatic with flags, sabers, and rifles being spun and tossed as the kids moved across the floor in time to the music.
