Orff: Carmina Burana - 1000 Years of Classical Music Vol. 84
Carl Orff brings the Middle Ages into the modern era with Carmina Burana, one of the best-loved choral works of the 20th century, and an exuberant celebration of the power of music`s simplest yet most versatile building blocks: beautiful melody, and raw rhythm.
This album is part of 1000 Years of Classical Music - a series of 100 volumes charting the history of music to be released on ABC Classics. More information can be found at the project`s website; www.1000YearsofClassicalMusic.com.
