Carmina Burana commences with a passionate outcry of lamentation addressed to Fortuna, the goddess of fortune. How can she reign so blindly over the world! The mercurial goddess strikes wounds indiscriminately and distributes her favours equally randomly; whoever is on top today, can be already on the way down tomorrow! All the more reason to enjoy the joys of life to the full while you can! The worshippers of the sun therefore swarm out to enjoy nature in the spring: they adorn themselves, dance, court each other and descend into a state of wild youthful exhilaration. The gamblers prefer to convene in the tavern where they loudly exchange coarse remarks and vulgar jokes, stuff their paunches with good food and their heads with alcohol and play furious games of dice and cards. The high society in contrast have a more elegant approach: they stroll along exquisite paths of love, philandering and sighing, flirting and bitching, scaring and tempting. And once every Jack has found his Jill, they immediately disappear into their little chambers! In conclusion: enjoy all the thousandfold pleasures of life without restraint, as who knows when Fortuna will strike again and once more wilfully withdraw her favours! On Maundy Thursday , Orff received a book which he had previously seen listed in an antiquarian book catalogue and immediately ordered: Carmina Burana.
