These bonus two days off have been interesting. I did some reading on the history of the Carmina Burana both online and off--I have plenty to do, or I'd post more of it--but I found this image, straight out of the original texts, and would you look at the bottom of the image! It's "O Fortuna," which happens to be the most well-known movement, but hey. Pretty sweet.

Evidently the original collection of poems had some religious songs, love songs, drinking songs, moral songs (songs with a moral), satirical songs, and some religious plays.

Anyway. Cheers!
