Carmina Burana

I don't think the following song is available for purchase, but I ran across it on youtube while investigating something else and had to post it. The Carmina Burana is a medieval manuscript composed of over 200 Latin poems and dramatic pieces in addition to being a very famous piece of music most of you will know by the German composer Carl Orff. Orff's work was based upon a number of the poems in the medieval manuscript.

I'm not sure Orff was aware of the following poem from the Carmina Burana, but the bit below, In Taberna Quando Sumus by Arany Zoltan is a fun piece. Now, why don't you crank up the volume and party like it's 1299!
