Scenic cantata composed by Carl Orff between 1935 and 1936, based on [[AdaptationDistillation a collection of medieval poems]].The piece lasts about an hour and has serious moments, goofy moments, and more than its share that are pure {{Narm}}. The lyrics cover all aspects of medieval life from sex, to drinking to the plight of sentient, talking roasted swans. If you've ever heard them and think that [[LyricalDissonance they don't sound a bit like a gambling garden party]], you're right. As an unfortunate footnote, it remains the most famous piece of music to emerge from UsefulNotes/NaziGermany.

Scenic cantata composed by Carl Orff between 1935 and 1936, based on [[AdaptationDistillation a collection of medieval poems]]. Notably they ''had'' been put to music before but in Orff's time nobody could read medieval music notation. Now we can and suffice it to say, the original melodies are rather different from what Orff came up with. The piece lasts about an hour and has serious moments, goofy moments, and more than its share that are pure {{Narm}}. The lyrics cover all aspects of medieval life from sex, to drinking to the plight of sentient, talking roasted swans.

* The original version of "One Winged Angel" from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'' borrows its lyrics from ''Carmina Burana'' (with the exception of an insertion of the villain's name). The song was given original, more thematically-fitting lyrics later on for its appearance in ''Franchise/KingdomHearts'' and ''[[TheMovie AdventChildren]]''.

''Carmina Burana'' can be used for a little bit of musical snobbery, distinguishing the people who recognize the work for what it is[[note]]"O Fortuna" is basically [[EmoTeen a college student complaining about how life isn't fair, and probably lamenting a loss at the gambling table]][[/note]] from those who only know it as the music from ''Film/TheOmen1976'' (or ''Film/{{Excalibur}}'', or ''Film/DieHard2'') or indeed from the Old Spice TV advert for aftershave.[[note]] - This ran for forever at least on British TV. Less well-kinown, more pastoral themes from later in the Burana have also been used to sell bread, potatoes and butter on British TV[[/note]]
